Due to the responses I got yesterday we made adjustments. Thank you for your opinions.

We hope that everyone is staying positive and supportive during these hard times. Use this time not to feed into the fear but catch up on cleaning the house, spend time with family, hold each other, laugh together, do all the normal things you would do if you were to take time off to work on you and family. This should bring us all closer together, catch up on time lost bc of our busy lives. Spring is here so plant a garden or make a rock garden with those rocks laying around!! 🌺🌸🌼🌹🌷🍄🌻🌺
*******We will be closing our digs for the rest of the month due to the virus and then possibly doing a small dig every Saturday of the month of April for about 40 people each day. It will be on a first come basis and I will post them to the site like we have previously done. We will charge $50 a person. We are hoping this will help with some of the folks going crazy stuck at home. If we are aware and careful we can do this without problems. Would anyone be interested? Please comment below but keep negative comments to yourself please. Thank you for your support!

PS: I will have the new dates for April posted on ledfordsminerals.com by the end of the day. Please check bc it’s a first come basis. Thank you!!

~~~~UPDATE ON PIT DIG~~~~

For Those Planning to Attend the Open PIT Dig:

We have had challenges getting water out of the pit, so we may have a little remaining and it will be very muddy. Please make sure to bring extra clothes and muck boots if you plan to dig the PIT.

Also, due to these unforeseen challenges we will REOPEN again at the end of SEPTEMBER on the 29th so there is more time for the PIT to dry. We will allow the PIT to be open again on this day.

Thank you for your support

Hello! I was hoping to come to the May 30th dig for my birthday but there are no tickets left. Am I right about that? Does anyone want to sell me theirs? Or, if you end up not going last minute, please text me and I will buy it. 828-230-5609. Also, will there be a June dig? Does anyone know? Thank you!
How far of a hike is it from your vehicle? Can you take a truck to where you want to dig? Whats the best way to haul all your tools and coolers?
love watching you guys on youtube,,,,now i want to dig for amethysts!!
My best find from 2019
I can't wait to visit there!!!
Just got this one cleaned up from the fall 2019 season. Still a lot more to clean. Will post soon.
Found this beauty at the season close dig 😍
My hub and I came to the dig 9/21.fisr timers, but found some nice crystals. Will be back in the spring!!
Does anybody know if we have to register to go or if we just show up? Thanks 🙂
Not gonna lie, this last shindig was brutal. Temp was 100F+ with little to no cloud cover. Inside the pit was higher with the dry dirt being near white reflecting the light at you. Ensure you bring some sort of shade and PLENTY of water. We brought a 24 pack of bottled water and ran out 3/4 of the day through and had to leave early.
The guy taking the money last week wasn't much help with advice last week.....woulda gotten skunked if I hadn't bumped into Thomas! Found this in the piles after he pointed me in the right direction. No purple, but still pretty cool.
Can't wait!!
