Crisson Gold Mine – Dahlonega July 16, 2016

Pack 703:

We have an opportunity to explore the Crisson Gold Mine in Dahlonega, GA on Saturday, July 16, 2016 at 10AM.  The cost is $9 per person with a total of 20+ attending.  With less than 20 attending the cost will go up to $15 each.  This will include 3 attractions:

Gold Panning – With one pan of dirt, you will learn the exciting art of Gold Panning and actually pan for that bright shiny metal yourself. You will get to take home your gold findings in your own bottle, this will be a good way to remember this fun experience. Great way to learn how the Old Timers did it!
Gemstone Search – With a two gallon bucket of dirt, you will learn to sift for many types of valuable gemstones from all around the world- Rubies, Sapphires, Emeralds, Garnets, Amethyst, and other brightly colored stones. We have wonderful descriptive charts to help identify all your Gems you found, as well as our knowledgeable instructors.
Wagon ride – Take our wagon ride through our nice woodsy area where you will see all of our animals, antique farming exhibits, and even pass by a gold mining tunnel as well as our Open Pit Gold Mine.

Please let us know ASAP if your family is interested in attending by emailing events.703@gmail.com.

Thanks!
