About Treasure Quest

Treasure Quest Mining is a mobile gem mining operation and pop-up prehistoric gift shop based our of Cary, North Carolina.

We are a family-run, mom-and-pop business in the truest sense.  Treasure Quest Mining springs out of our passion for spending time with our son and embarking on a true treasure hunt together.  When we’re not working, you will often find us metal detecting, searching for fossils along the coast, or digging for gems in the mountains.

Spring through Fall, you can find us traveling local fairs and festivals with our mobile gem mining sluice, bringing the treasure hunting experience to the Raleigh-area for families to enjoy closer to home.  Treasure Hunters will find gems, minerals, fossils, seashells and other beach finds.  Visit our website or Facebook page to find our upcoming events and follow along with our adventure.  On our sister website you will find gem, shell & fossil identification pages that you might enjoy exploring.  

Our pop-up prehistoric gift shop features fossil and rare earth treasures perfect for the rockhound or aspiring paleontologist in your life.  We are purveyors of fine quality educational and entertaining toys, authentic fossil specimens and unique geologic treasures.  You can purchase from us online or in-person at regional fairs and festivals.  Visit our website or Facebook page to find upcoming events.
