The Mine

The Ponderosa Mine is a patented Oregon sunstone mine. This means that Desert Sun Mining & Gems legally owns all of the real estate.

The Mine is located in southeast Oregon, just outside of the town of Burns. It features 60 lush acres of Oregon's ponderosa pine trees, which makes for a unique park-like setting. The mine has several creature comforts, including a paved highway that leads right to the front gate. Ease of operation, almost antithetical to mining, is the hallmark of the Ponderosa.

The Ponderosa Mine is privately held by Desert Sun Mining & Gems and is NOT available for "Fee-Digging."
