Mr Happy Gem Mining logoMister Happy Gem Mining 

Kids will love to pan for gems at the Mister Happy Gem Mining, located at Sky High.  Cost is $10 for a 3 pound bag of gems,  $14 for a 5 pound bag of gems or $25 for the Motherlode 10 pound bag.

Targeted to children as young as 2, the experience mimics old fashioned panning for gold. Each miner purchases a bag of sand that contains either gems or fossils. The contents of the bag are dumped into a frame with a screen on the bottom. Miners wash the sand away with water that runs through a 65 foot long sluice and the treasures are left in the pan. An identification card is included for children to learn more about their gems or fossils.
