Please note these dates and times we will be busy if you're planning a visit!
For $30 we grant miners permission to our one-of-a-kind Cave Mine Simulation. We will gear you up in an authentic vest, hardhat, and head lamp before entering the shaft for a tour. After a rundown of locations and safety, our miners are free to roam and collect their desired findings up to a pound of rocks!
Hidden away from the untrained eye, we have an extensive reserve of clear quartz awaiting each miner. Our hidden gems await only the boldest of person. But be warned, you can't reach these beauties without lots of courage and a little elbow grease!
A dark journey that lies ahead for those who pine for the gold of fools! Only until you reach the end will you stumble upon the glimmering pyrite. This feat is not advised for a meek soul as this tunnel requires a level head and the determination only few possess!
Lurking beneath the unassuming sand is ancient specimens awaiting daylight once more. These aquatic remnants of history lay undisturbed yearning to be held in the right hands. Though beautiful they are, the teeth and shells of these creatures are few and far between so miners must be sure to leave more for their visit the next time!
Delightful treasures only to be found in the proper light, these mystical gems are lurking where you least expect them! Do not be fooled by their common appearance, for they are far beyond a regular stone.
Both large and small, we have varieties sourced from places like India, Madagascar, and Brazil. Brillant colors and wonderful variety await a proper home with a special miner. These beauties age finely, perfect to be treasured for many years to come!
If you're looking for an unforgettable experience AND the ability to pick and choose what you get, this is the perfect option for you! Almost everything we offer in the buckets can be found in the mine, just waiting to be found.
We find our mimers are generally digging for 10-30 minutes. Overall, it's totally dependent on the dedication of the miner and what they have in mind!
For $30 you get a pound of rocks. We have scales waiting for you on the outside to make sure you have grabbed enough! If you're under a pound we encourage all miners to re-enter the cave to ensure the best experience possible, each and every time.
We give our miners a couple options: Our first option we give is to lighten your load until your back down to a pound. Our second option is to pay extra to keep all your goodies, starting at $25 per pound!
Example: 2 pounds of rock will total to $55
Yes! While some areas like the pyrite tunnel are not accessible, the main floor is wheelchair and stroller friendly. While we understand this limits the experience for some miners, we have done our best to provide work arounds and accessible areas to the small raw rocks, clear quarts, tumbles, and fossils.
