Mini Youth Gem Mining Adventure
Sunday, May 19th, 2019 our Mini Youth group travelled to Emerald Hollow Mine to discover treasure. We had 19 people go on this outing and each person had a blast finding all sorts of buried treasures. From ages 10 months and up fun was had by all. After grabbing lunch at McDonalds we were on our way to the mine.
We participated in the educational tour. Which included a tour of the current mining pits, surface mining, creeking, and the sluiceway. Our wonderful guide, Lily, shared with us just how mining came to be and all that goes into the creation of the various gemstones that were found.
