Mission Statement

The Hidden Treasure Mining Company was established so that all may experience and share in the thrill of discovery. To instill in others the wonder, interest, and curiosity of seeking knowledge with first hand experience and to realize the same happiness that I find in "mining". Enabling all to enjoy this experience of discovery by sifting through material - "in the rough", for a variety of treasures from minerals and gemstones to fossils and other artifacts. We hope to share this experience with you in fulfilling this joyful task. We make learning fun.

About Us

Bio

The Hidden Treasure Mining Company was established in 2012, when a young girl, my oldest daughter Lydia, asked me, "Daddy, why can't you build an old fashioned sluice box so that we can find our own treasures...". And, from that thought came the idea of the Hidden Treasure Mining Company. The magic happens when we pull up in our mobile, portable trailer that has all the fixings of an old mining camp sluice operation.


Once inside our trailer we supply you with a bag of rough material of your choice. You gently pour the sandy material into your sifter and slosh it through the water trough, rinsing away the sand, leaving only your fossils, minerals, gemstones, and other artifacts to be found. The looks and voices raised in discovery make for a happy, fulfilling experience for all.   


Now, years later, we have streamlined our operation that we take to schools, local fairs, birthday parties and other regional events. Here you become your own Master of Discovery. Maybe this will instill a lifelong quest for knowledge in geology , archeology or some other science. If so, we have accomplished our goal - to explore, to discover and to enjoy our Earth's treasures. 


We look forward to seeing you at the Hidden Treasure Mining Company.
