With over 50 years in the mining industry, the folks at the Dukes Creek Gold and Ruby Mining Company know a thing or two about panning for treasure. From humbled beginnings with a local sand and gravel pit to the family adventure you can experience today, the Jackson family has a long history with gold and gems. The North Georgia Mountains and scenic Alpine Helen Georgia provide a picturesque backdrop to the fun and excitement that awaits you, but it also brings a lot of history to our product, with the gold coming from Dukes Creek, the site of the first major Gold Rush in American history!

Dukes Creek Gold and Ruby Mines is open year round. Please give us a call to verify daily hours.
