$20 for Two Prospector’s Dream Buckets ($40 Value)

Each Prospector’s Dream Bucket holds 2.5 gallons of dirt and gems that kids can sift through with water from the flume. Mining minors can take home whatever treasures they find, and indoor flumes mean that the mine stays open in all weather.

Elijah Mountain Gem Mine

Families fill their buckets with the gem-studded dirt, strap on their prospector hats, and sift through the loot with the help of wooden flumes. The flumes, all-weather and wheelchair-accessible, wash away dirt to reveal fossils, quartz crystals, uncut emeralds, and other treasures to take home. Miners can opt for specialty buckets that contain higher concentrations of certain stones and fossils. A 3,000-square-foot rock and fossil shop is stocked with sundries from the United States and Europe that, unlike precious stones or the White House's water slide, are displayed in plain sight. Enjoy the petting zoo which features baby goats, chickens and a rabbit.

My son and I had a wonderful time! My son loves gems and fossils and Mr. Joe, who works there, turned our visit into a fun, but educational time. My son has told everyone all the fun facts he learned about fossils from our visit. We had a wonderful time and plan to go back!
