The staff was very helpful on arrival and showed us how to pan for gold. We chose to go to the river, even though we were told our chances were much better buying a bucket. We were looking for the experience in the river since we can really buy a bucket of rocks or gold and pan in the wells... More

The gems are mixed in with plain rocks so it's nearly impossible to tell the difference between most of the gems from rocks to an untrained eye. Some of the gems are shiny like peridot so that is easy to spot but rubies are not what they look like in the jewelry store so that can be easily passed over.

When we first got there, nobody really showed us what to do. They asked if we wanted to find gold or gems. We didn't know how to do either. We said we would do the gold. Then we did the gems. They asked us which bucket we wanted w /o telling us anything about them . We bought a bucket... More

We saw the brochures around town and really thought it would be fun to pan in a river. So, we signed up and then found out that it really wasn't panning in a river. They dumped a mound of dirt beside the river and that was the only place we were allowed to dig from. Yes, we took the dirt... More

The young lady was absolutely no help, we ask her several time on instruction on how to pan and she was not willing to give out any info. It was like top secerect info. After returning to base we were stop by another couple leaving for the creek and they were also just as confused as we were.

Children and adults alike had fun sifting through rocks and searching for gems. We invested in a $20 bucket and found quite a few gems. I regret not having the full mining experience of going down to the creek with our buckets and shovels which in addition is cheaper. Overall it was a good experience with friendly staff in a... More

It was a lot of fun having a day there. Mining in the river is much less expensive, than just take a bucket at the shop. A half day of mining is just 15$ and you can find a lot of gems there. It is a 70 minute drive from Atlanta and a trip worth.

Kids had fun. We bought the 60.00 bucket. As the kids found their gems I just kept checking in the dirt where they were sifting and found gold. See attached photo.
