In December of 2011 while cleaning out one of our warehouses I uncovered our portable
Gemstone Mining Sluice that we used at Company Picnics some years ago. I had to get a team together to find all the parts and put it back together. I went back to my office and called the company that I had purchased the Sluice from and to my surprise they were still in business, but they now referred to the sluice as part of their “Earth Science Program.” When I spoke with my salesperson she informed me of how popular and diversified the Earth  Science Program had become, and is written into the curriculum K-12 in the North Carolina Schools. Unfortunately with the budget restraints, and security many of the school classes cannot afford the buses, fuel, a full day out of the classroom for the teacher and the additional personnel to take the students on the Gem Mining Field Trips.

With our “Mobile Sluice Unit” we could mount it in an Enclosed Trailer that would accommodate
an entire class at one time, rain or shine, hot or cold and take the program to the schools.
Mobile Gemstone Mining was born. With our experience in the entertainment industry the
Development of the Gem Mining Program, Fossil Dig, and the Geode Cracking Station, while
Challenging, the transition was relatively easy for us even though we are still learning and developing.

One of the new issues that we wanted to be sure to address in the very beginning was handicapped
and disabled children, our enclosed trailer can accommodate any wheel chair bound child.

We are a member of the Lewisville-Clemmons Chamber of Commerce.
