Thank you for taking the time to visit our store. The idea for Kolt Mining Company came together after we hosted a birthday party for our son. There is a farmer’s market down the road from us that has some little shops and places to eat. Every time we would go, we had to stop by two places, the shooting gallery and the rough mining trough. At the rough mining trough, you were able to pick different price point bags that had various rocks, minerals, gemstones and fossils. He had mentioned wanting to have a birthday party where he and his friends could mine for the same type of material. This lead us on the journey of finding mining rough and building our own trough in the backyard. The party was a huge success! After the party we donated the mining trough to a local school to help teach kids about the California gold rush.

We thought this would be an awesome idea to offer to those who did not have the availability to this type of experience. That is how Kolt Mining Company was started. While we now offer more than just mining rough, the purpose has remained the same, encourage learning through fun. Our son has always been fascinated with where things come from and how things work. We have always tried to offer toys that provided more than just fun. Toys should help stimulate the mind and a child’s imagination, creativity, and inventive solutioning.
