My kids loved this! We ate breakfast at the Iron Bridge restaurant, which is located right next to Aska, then headed next door to find some gems! This was great fun for my family and we ended up with a lot of cool gems and fossils!
They go above and beyond! If you're ever in the area, you MUST stop at Aska Mining Company! Not only are the gems (and knowledge) top notch, their customer service is like no other. The gift shop is amazing! The kids got the coolest mining helmets with headlamps! Super reasonable. They're great with kids and adults alike.
An experience not to be missed!! My 13 year old daughter enjoyed the gem mining experience and we have lots of treasures to remind us of the day. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful in identifying the gems. Make sure to stop by the cafe next door for a great cup of coffee then enjoy rocking in the comfortable rocking chairs at the front of the store.
Awesome family attraction in a beautiful setting! What a wonderful activity to do that brings together all ages. Nice for the kids to actually put down the cell phones for a change and actually talk and engage with us. Highly recommend!

We had such a great time at Aska Mining Company. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Great spot to spend a half day. A groups of 10 of us ages 5 to 50 tubed across the street, grabbed bite to eat and then went gem mining.
So glad we went here today! So much fun! $6.50 bucket took my 3 year old 15 mins and he loved it! Also helps that the employees are so knowledgeable.
