The staff at the mine entrance are friendly and helpful. If you arrive late, they will sell you a ticket and advise you to view the videos and return the next day for your "dig". This is good advice, the videos are very helpful and...More

About 500 per year over the past few years. It varies from year to year depending on how many visitors they have. You can see the yearly statistics at their website in the Media // Diamond Statistics menu.
