Now Open for the kids and adults...Door Mining Co.
Gravity Trails Zip Line and Kayak Tours of Door County is now offering gem mining as its newest activity. Adults and children of all ages can now purchase pails of gem enriched soil and sift through them in a 16ft mining flume, which pumps 80 gallons of water a minute. There are two different size pails, a 2 quart pail for $10, and a 5 quart pail for $20. Just place a scoop of soil onto the mining screens and rinse with clean water to reveal gems of different colors and sizes. Miners can discover up to 15 different types of gems and minerals. Staff is on hand to help identify and educate miners of their find. Everyone leaves with a bag of gems. This activity combines young people's sense of adventure and discovery with their continuing thirst for knowledge. Kids love identifying what they find. The best part is they keep everything they reveal. Every bag is different so it will be an activity they'll want to repeat.
