Our fees are $70 per person for you to lease access to a virgin ore pile for one day of
shovel and screening for Oregon Sunstone crystals. (Children under 12 years old
are Free) You can also purchase for $240 one yard of 3 inch minus production ore.
We will also screen the virgin ore for you with our powered screening plant. This
screened material is then placed on waist high screening table, great for folks with
physical limits and handicaps, or you just don't want to run a shovel. At the screening
table you can take your time going through the material removing your Oregon
Sunstone crystals from the host Basalt rock. NO time limit, limit of 4 adults per table or
One Family. 1 yard is about equal to about 40, 1/2 to 3/4 full 5 gallon buckets.
