Experience the excitement and adventure of discovering your own treasure. Purchase bags of “mining rough” containing gemstone, arrowheads, or fossils at the Ohiopyle Mining Company. Pour your bag of “rough” into a screen tray and lower the tray into the mining sluice of water. While you shift and shake the tray, watch as the water washes away the dirt and reveals your treasures.

This is a popular activity for school groups, youth groups, scouts, and birthday parties as miners learn how to pan for treasure, identify what they find, and take home a nice collection of goodies. Entertaining and educational, panning for treasure at the Ohiopyle Mining Company is fun for all ages!

Call us today to book a reservation or birthday party.
