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 that we blasted out 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 newly blasted material on a regular basis. 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.
