Any Plans For The Weekend?

if you are in America here are a few ideas,

it seems like fun and you could get rich, go gold or gem hunting, with an area as big as the USA there are so many gem sites you can look around and take a chance on being lucky, here are a few, 

The Emerald Hollow Mine is the only emerald mine in the world open to the public for prospecting, in the foothills of the Brushy Mountains, this North Carolina Emerald mine is located in the small town of Hiddenite, North Carolina,

Crater of Diamonds offers park visitors a one-of-a-kind experience, hunting for real diamonds, but be prepared to cover somne ground, the site covers over 37 ½-acres that is the eroded surface of the world's eighth largest diamond-bearing volcanic crater, and now the good bit, if you find a diamond, it is yours to keep!

guess what you might find on The Jade Cove Trail? you guessed it Jade! the trail is about one and a half miles long and runs along the coast, the Jade Cove Beach sign is just 3.3 miles north of Gorda, or 29.8 miles north of the Hearst Castle turnoff, travelling south on Highway 1, the Jade Cove Beach sign is 9.7 miles south of Lucia or 33.8 miles south of the entrance to Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park.

The Morefield Mine is one of the few operating mines in the United States where collecting is allowed on a regular basis, no less than 10 minerals species can be found on any day and with experience, time, and depending on what is being mined underground, more of the almost 80 mineral species occurring in the Morefield pegmatite can be found, it is situated at 13400 Butlers Road - Amelia, Virginia 23002.

what about gold I hear you ask, well have a look here for a list of sites you can go to for gold prospecting on public sites, these are of course just a few of the many sites to look for gems and other treasures, so here you will find a more comprehensive list, but please remember to check first the the venue is open and what charges are made, happy hunting!
