Gem Mining

Dodge City has hit the mother lode. Settlers have moved in from all areas of the world trying to make it big. You too could be one to hit the mother lode.

The mining sluice is a series of troughs leading from a water-filled wooden tower. As the water runs through the troughs, just empty your bag of mining “rough” into the sifting trays and let the water wash away the dirt, revealing polished stones. It’s like panning for gold – plus you get to pocket whatever you find! After discovering your stones, use the identification charts to accurately identify exactly what you have found.
Bags of rough mix are $6 for your enjoyment – (visa and MasterCard accepted).

Kids of all ages enjoy the Tweite’s Family Farm Gem Mining Adventure and take home a special souvenir of their visit.
