A visit to the Oceanview Mine allows you a unique view of the only actively working underground mine in the world-famous Pala Gem mining district and a chance to find your own gems—tourmalines, kunzites, morganites and more. Screen the dump piles of material we take out of our mine and find the gems we’ve missed—and we miss a lot! You get to keep everything you find at no extra charge; the standard dig fee allows you to keep all you find and you can take home one 5-gallon bucket of rocks that you have screened and washed. Guests also get a jeep tour of Chief Mountain where you can see all of the currently active mines and prospects, as well as views of the famous Pala Chief, Tourmaline Queen and other historic mines.
Family Tip: "We just went to this mine a few months ago. Just a little tip- my car had troubles getting up the road to the actual mine. If you have a low profile car it was a bit tricky."
