We visited the mine yesterday. This was our 2nd trip to this mine as we visited 2 years ago. We chose to do the river grubbing for half a day. Keep in mind everyone has to pay even if they aren't going to participate. We had 4 adults, 2 teenagers and a 9 year old in our party. We panned... More

Ok...I have to admit my husband and I were a bit skeptical at 1st when we called to make reservations for the campground and they said there were only 8 RV hookup sites. We have never camped at a campground that small and were not really sure what to expect, but we're pretty laid back people so we knew if... More

Take it for what it is, we had a really good time. Our older children loved finding the gems even if the experience was a little pricey. Family time in the outdoors with no electronics or distractions was well worth it. We found the lady in the shop very sincere and informative when chatting with us and our chatty children.... More

Sometimes the owner is here and he will walk you thru everything, but his employees are lackluster. Here's the deal: you buy a bucket of dirt and sift thru it to find the gems/gold. If you don't know what to look for, you WONT FIND IT. Before you take your kids to any gem dig - KNOW WHAT TO LOOK... More

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
