Operating 7 days a week this summer until September 5!

The mountains and valleys that surround Panorama are rich in mining history and stories of folks hoping to make their fortunes in these hills. Here’s your chance to sluice your way to wonder with our new treasure hunt panning experience! Paying homage to local heritage, Paradice Mining Co. is a hands on experience where you’ll pan for gemstones, arrowheads, fossils and shells.

First choose from several different bags of mining rough, then with a screening tray and a sense of discovery you’ll find uncover hidden treasures as the water of the sluice washes away the rough. Take your finds to the assay centre and identify what you found.

Come and get your hands dirty!
