Prospector Hill Gem Mining

Discover something amazing…

Prospector Hill Gem Mine features indoor and outdoor sluices, making it easy for each family to feel like they’re at their own private gem mine. Guests can take home 100% of the gems they find and weights are determined by what you find, not the size of the bucket. Choose from different mine rough buckets:

The Prospector with over a pound of gems

The Miner 49er with over 2 pounds of gems

The Carolina Gold Rush with over 4 pounds of gems

The Semi Precious Bucket with 3lbs of amethyst, topaz, citrine, and garnet*

The Precious Bucket with 3lbs of emerald, ruby, and sapphire*

*All gems are in rough form. We do not have cut gems.
