There are few activities more fun than mining your own gems. At Ron Coleman Mining, we have extensive premises boasting a huge mine, a gift shop full of decorative quartz and other minerals, a wholesale shop for buying minerals in bulk, an RV resort and a large digging area for the intrepid visitor. Our mine is so fruitful that we guarantee you’ll walk away with a bag full of beautiful quartz crystal or decorative amethyst, or we’ll pay back the digging fees of adults and seniors!

We offer quartz and amethyst crystal in a great variety of sizes for sale in our gift shop, as well as minerals from around the world. We have an entirely separate area for wholesale buyers to buy items for purchase for their own shops. We also encourage you to view our incredible gallery, which features museum quality pieces, dug right here in our own mine, as well as large specimens from around the world. If you’re interested in staying to dig another day, check out our grand RV park, which offers plenty of space and a gorgeous view of the Arkansas mountain range. Take a look at just a few of the many reasons why we’ve become the region’s premier destination for fun:

  • We offer special group rates and event-filled mining for special occasions.
  • Our RV park reservations are available on a nightly and monthly basis.
  • We have a custom shuttle service from the Hot Springs, as well as a new zip line attraction.

Available Activities

Ron Coleman Mining offers comprehensive rock mining for all ages and skill levels, whether you’re completing a mineral tour of the country or taking your young children on a family adventure. Some of the many features of our mine include:

  • Daily mining: Anyone and everyone is welcome to our public mining area at any time, no reservations necessary. We are open all day, every day, year round, with just slightly shorter hours during the winter season. Young children dig free and we even allow leashed pets to “mine” with you.
  • Mine Tours: Have you ever thought about the process of our quartz crystals being mined from the rugged earth and becoming shiny decorative rocks? Our tours begin with a short history of the mine and a view of our Gallery. Next, take an army truck ride down through the mine where you get to see the crystal veins and our water source. We finish your adventure in the processing area where we clean and sort the crystals. For more information, call (800) 291-4484
  • All-day unlimited digging: Once you’ve paid your digging fee, you’re welcome to dig as long as you like for that day and to come and go as you please, so feel free to wander over to the gift shop, take a rest or go out to lunch. We provide you with a complimentary gem bag to hold your findings, but you are by no means limited to the capacity of the bag. Extra bags are for sale for only 50 cents.
  • Guaranteed findings: We’re proud to offer a guarantee to our adult and senior diggers. If you’re dissatisfied with your findings, we’ll direct you to the back porch of our gift shop and ensure you leave with your fee’s worth of beautiful, unique crystals.
  • Training and protective gear: Our friendly staff will direct you to the digging area, go over our few rules, guide you on what you’ll be looking for, provide expert answers to any questions you may have and give you the opportunity to purchase tools and safety gear, such as protective gloves and eyewear.
  • Special group rates: While reservations are not required for individuals or families, we do offer group reservations at unbeatable special rates. Call 800-291-4484 or fill out our online form to reserve your group’s adventure.
