George Martin from Helena, MT teamed up with Great Falls folks to prospect in Crystal Park, MT. The pick ax was used on the human gopher holes on the mountainside. Outings are our specialty.

Blaze N'Gems offers digging for sapphires via buckets to take home but here is the day's take from his manufactured machine that processes truck loads of gravel. We offer opportunities for you to get gravel buckets.




One of the aspects of our group is learning how to use a variety of simple equipment on-site so you can get a hands on experience out in the field so you can duplicate this activity on your own.
