Farmer Joe,
  "We had a wonderful time at the gem mine.  It was my daughter and her boyfriend's first time in West Virginia and they were so excited to go to Someplace Special.  The gemstones were phenomenal, and so was the company.  My daughter would also like to thank you for the beautiful puppy you let her take back to Massachusetts.  He'll be spoiled rotten in no time!  We just wanted to thank you once again for another wonderful day with you at Someplace Special.  We'll be back real soon and my daughter and her boyfriend's next visit will also have time set aside for an exciting day of gem mining.

ATTENTION!!!!
An EXTREMELY !!!!Rich cache of gemstones was found this fall and promises to produce even more treasures this year.  Early tests indicate a substantial increase in valuable material found in each bag of paydirt. 
This looks to be
some of the worlds best gemstone paydirt available to the public.
"Dear Farmer Joe:
 What a great way to celebrate my birthday!!!   I found an amazing Emerald, a nice Garnet and my first Ruby Zoisite. What a nice birthday present! Of course I also found many other nice gemstones and several Indian Head Pennies (1895-1900) and "V" Nickels (1897-1905) while metal detecting. I had my husband by my side and my sister-in-law, Patty , with us (who was here on vacation ).
I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate my birthday than to be at Someplace "truly" Special!!!
Thanks for a wonderful day"

 
  A recent single 2 1/2 gallon bucket yielded an amazing  2.2 lbs of valuable treasure
The best part is ..YOU GET TO KEEP WHAT YOU FIND!!!!  .
 
 
 

 
 "Hi Farmer Joe:
We had a great time metal detecting at Someplace Special. We found 3 Liberty Head "V" nickels dating 1899-1912. What a thrill it was to dig up coins that are over 100 years old!!! We can't wait to see what other treasures may be hidden on your property on our next visit. We had a wonderful day, finding gemstones in the morning, finding buried coins in the afternoon and bringing home some gold buckets and good memories........
 Thanks for making our day special"

  Its an affordable way to spend a few fun hours gem hunting at home. 
  
 

"Farmer Joe,
  We enjoyed our visit to Someplace Special Gem Mine so much that we can't wait to return. Here are photos of the 9 gold pickers that we brought home with us and we still have another gold bucket that we brought home with us to go through!  
Thank-you so much for sharing your knowledge of gold and gemstones
