Fee Dig Information:


We will be closed on Monday, July 4th, 2016.


We are OPEN for fee digs for the Spring/Summer


Bring good shoes, sun protection, plenty of liquid refreshments, and snacks. Please note that the mine currently only has 3 sapphire gravel screening stations setup, so booking your visit ahead of time is VERY important. It usually takes 2-3 hours to screen the dirt, and it is a lot of work, especially in the Summer heat.

Some shade is available. Please allow for variable weather conditions. Cold and wet weather gear is also recommended as the weather can change rapidly even in the Summer.

If weather on the day of your dig is particularly bad (lightning, torrential rain), we will allow you to reschedule.

We have all the equipment you need to search for sapphires on site, although you are free to take purchased buckets of gravel concentrate home with you in addition to, or even instead of, using the mine's equipment.

We have two portable toilets on the premises, with one of them being wheelchair accessible.



Current weather for Helena can be found here.



Fee Dig Hours are generally 10AM to 6PM.

To book a Fee Dig, call us at (406)437-8605 and talk to Bruce.

Each bucket contains pre-sized and unsearched sapphire gravel concentrate.

(5) - Concentrated 5 Gallon buckets for $50

(11) - Concentrated 5 Gallon buckets for $100.

We keep the mine open to fee digs until Winter hits, which varies by year. We will put an announcement on this page and the Facebook page when the mine is closed for the Winter.

Some GPS's have an error where it tells you to turn at Huotari Lane, which is too early. You should continue down Favorite Gulch Road to the Four Cee's street sign, before turning.
