The Tailings Area is a great affordable option for families and groups of all sizes and abilities. The tailings is a large open area where we bring truckloads of dirt and crystals from of our mine pits and spread it out in a field. Come anytime before 2:00 and stay all day until 4:00 p.m.. You can dig as little or as much as you want, however we recommend spending at least 1-2 hours for the best results. We keep our tailings refreshed by adding new material weekly (weather promoting). Our tailings is handicap accessible with the option of driving right up to the digging area. There are restrooms just a 1/4 mile away, located at our store where you sign up. After signing up, you can come and go as you please all day until 4:00 p.m.
The Tailings is nestled in a beautiful valley surrounded by the Ouachita National Forest. There are shaded picnic tables under large pecan trees where you can take a break, enjoy some food, or just watch your friends and family dig.
