What's New in 2015!
This spring we have made many improvements! We have made a nice landscaped picnic area. The campground has been improved with more fire rings and a new site for large groups of campers. Electrical upgrades have been made on the building to handle the upgrades that are coming! Also we now have a dig your own enriched pile that well be ready this summer. Coming soon we have specialty enriched buckets with emerald bonanza buckets, wicked ruby and sapphire collection buckets, and a cutter's special bucket that has the lapidarist and jewelry makers in mind! The cutter's specialty bucket will have a better grade of material that lends itself to being cut. We now have plans to make our black light tour available even in the winter. Before we start we would like your input to see if there would be a demand for it. Also we would to see if there would be interest in us putting on a wash plant demonstration. The wash plant is much like sluicing for gold and we would show you how we prospect for new sapphire bearing ore. Just go to our facebook site masons sapphire mine and post comments if you would like to see this happen!
New Dig for 2015!!!
In March after before the season began we brought in a large track hoe and did some major digging and finished the excavating with our track hoe. We plan on a good year for bell ringers! In fact last year we had an 20 percent increase compared to 2013!
