Gem Panning at Prospector's Creek

Gem Panning

For an adventure above ground, try gem panning at Prospector’s Creek! Fun for prospectors of all ages!

We have several varieties of mining rough for purchase in the gift shop, including gem stones, emeralds, or fossils. Pour a small portion of your bag of mining rough into your gem pan, screen and slide it through the mining sluice. Real gems or fossils will appear and will be yours to keep. You might find crystal points, pyrite, garnets, amethyst, and more. A gem identification card is included with each bag of mining rough.
