Noting like it LONG time ago.

Many years ago you could walk out onto the dirt areas and sift all day long. This now a days, is cheap and horrible. You took a good thing and turned it into a money pit.

it is only about 15 minutes and cost about $13 for a small bucket. For my family it was not worth the money and not what we were expecting

We found several real gems. Blue topaz, star ruby, tourmaline which were sent out to be cut plus amethyst and garnet. Fun

Couldn't find no one to help us when we arrived. I called and spoke to someone who told me that there was no problem with it raining because everything had a cover. However when we arrive no body came out to assist us.
