Experience the adventure of mining your own gems and fossils! Just buy a bag of our special gem or fossil mix in the gift shop, then pan away the sand the old fashioned way in our authentic gem sluice to reveal all sorts of amazing finds!
Fun for the Whole Family
Hey, Mom, look what I found! Gem panning is an excellent family activity that provides lots of fun for kids and adults. An excellent way to start a collection and learn about geology and mining history.
Each bag contains a good mix of interesting, beautiful (and a few rare) minerals or fossils. Here you can see the typical contents of a Gem Panning Bag. No two bags are alike; you’ll find something new every time!
