About Us

ABOUT US AND YOUR ADVENTURE

 

WE HAVE BEEN PROVIDING SAPPHIRES TO LOCALS AND TOURISTS IN THE HAMILTON AREA OF THE BITTERROOT VALLEY FOR OVER 20 YEARS.  WHEN WE FIRST BEGAN PROVIDING GRAVEL, PEOPLE REQUESTED THAT WE DO IT LOCALLY, SO THAT THEY WOULD NOT HAVE TO TRAVEL SO FAR IN A DAY TO HAVE THE EXPERIENCE. THIS HAS BEEN A VALUABLE TIME SAVING WAY FOR PEOPLE TO BRING THE FUN OF MINING TO THEIR FRIENDS AND FAMILY, WITHOUT THE DAYS TIME IT WOULD TAKE TO GO ALL THE WAY TO THE ACTUAL MINING AREA.

 

BECAUSE OF THIS, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO DO IN APPROXIMATELY ONE AND A HALF TO TWO HOURS, WHAT IT MIGHT TAKE YOU ALL DAY, AND HOURS OF DRIVING, TO DO. WITH THE SAME, OR BETTER RESULT. AND YOU WILL THEN HAVE PLENTY OF TIME TO CONTINUE TO EXPLORE THE REST OF WHAT THE BITTERROOT VALLEY AND WESTERN MONTANA HAVE TO OFFER. 

 

WE LOVE TO SEE NEW ' MINERS ' FIND THEIR FIRST SAPPHIRES, AND WE ESPECIALLY ENJOY HELPING THEM TURN THEIR FIRST STONES INTO MONTANA TREASURES. ONCE YOU HAVE WASHED YOUR FIRST BAG, YOU WILL FEEL THE BUG, AND POSSIBLY CATCH WHAT WE CALL THE 

" SAPPHIRE FEVER " !  

 

IN SUMMER, ADVANCE APPOINTMENTS ARE NECESSARY IF YOU PLAN TO DO YOUR WASHING HERE ON SITE. HOWEVER, WITH A QUICK CALL, YOU MAY BE ABLE TO PICK UP " GRAVEL TO GO " . IF YOU ARE PLANNING A GROUP VISIT, PLAN AHEAD AND CALL AT LEAST A WEEK BEFORE YOUR GROUP PLANS TO COME. MAIL ORDERS ARE ALWAYS AVAILABLE WITH A CALL OR EMAIL. 

 

OUR SEASON RUNS BASICALLY FROM MEMORIAL DAY TO LABOR DAY. WINTER FREEZES OUR OUTDOOR OPPORTUNITY TO WASH GRAVEL, BUT WE REMAIN OPEN WITH A CALL TO PICK UP GRAVEL TO WASH AT YOUR OWN LOCATION. MANY OF OUR ' REGULARS ' MINE YEAR ROUND, IN HEATED GARAGES, KITCHENS, LAUNDRY ROOMS, WHEREVER THEIR FEVER FINDS THEM ! 

 

MAIL ORDERS INCLUDE  INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO WASH YOUR GRAVEL, FIND YOUR STONES, AND SEND BACK FOR EVALUATION AND PROCESSING. WE WILL HAPPILY COMMUNICATE WITH YOU VIA EMAIL OR PHONE CALL TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING YOUR MINING EXPERIENCE. CATCH THE FEVER !
