Mitkof Island’s Garnet Mine

Mining made easy!

There are unique places on our island where you can find little gemstones called garnets. Most are red in color, but you may find other colors as well. The garnets themselves don’t have much value, but the experience to mine them out of the rock is priceless.

This trip is a majestic drive through the Tongass National Rain Forest with the possibility of seeing Moose, Black Bear, Porcupines, Sitka Deer, and more. The view of Leconte Glacier from the mine is spectacular. Come and enjoy the beauty.
