Dress for the weather

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 25 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 find. Every bag is different so it will be an activity they’ll want to repeat.

We have space for birthday parties, boy scout groups, girl scout groups and class trips.

Located on HWY 42 just South of Fish Creek.
