For some events, heavy equipment is used to move rock to expose new materials for collecting. The newly exposed rock will be coated with muck, and locating fine minerals will be challenging. We allow the use of metal detectors for aiding in finding Native Copper and Silver.
The number of people at each event is limited!
Please try to bring your own collecting gear. We require safety glasses and closed toed shoes. Gloves and hats optional. WE want your collecting experience to be fun and rewarding, however there is No guarantee of finding treasure. You may be on site ONLY during mine events, mineral rights are privately owned by Evergreen Explorations, LLC.
