We bring the thrill of the gold rush to your event

Participants receive a bag of mining rough enriched with either gemstones or fossils from around the world.

Sift through the rough with the aid of a screen bottom tray and as the water from the sluice washes away the sand their treasures are revealed.

Each panner keeps all they find and with the help of the identification chart they can readily identify their collection of treasures.
