Gold & Gem Mining

Gold and Gem Mining in MIssoula

Home to some of the largest sapphire deposits in the world, a Montana vacation without a dig is like ice cream without cake. Grab your boots and pail and hit the trail for an afternoon of dirt, dust and pay-off. Although typically not the largest, Montana sapphires are gem-quality straight out of the ground and rarely need heat-treatments like most commercial stones receive.
