Located in Beautiful Deep Creek Lake, MD Next to The Lakeside Creamery
Have a blast gemstone mining in our sluice while overlooking the lake & learn a lot about gemstones from all over the world! Prices for mining rough start at $12.95, & every miner gets to choose a special gift from our gift shop next door valued at $4.99!
Our grand opening for the sluice was Saturday 4/14/18 & the fun loving gals below were our first three miners! (Amy, Corby, & Nicole) They had quite the adventure!
Nicole says: "Get the Mother Lode...it's soooo worth it !"
* A Deep Creek Adventure *
Gemstone Mining is easy & fun! Simply purchase either a 3lb, 5lb, or 10lb bag of mining rough, then head to the sluice & dump a portion of your bag in a screen tray & submerge it in the running water and watch your gemstones or fossils appear as the sand washes away! Compare what you've discovered to your educational ID card! You get to keep all you've found!
* Be prepared to have a blast & learn a lot ! *
