About us
In Loving Memory of Susan Tamburino 
Originally from Florida, she moved to Georgia and purchased Gold 'n Gem Grubbin' in 1992. She was an Accountant and Marketing Specialist. She enjoyed Gold mining a lot more than doing other's taxes! She was the owner of Gold 'n Gem Grubbin' for 24 years and made it her daily goal to treat costumers as if they were part of our family!
Gold 'n Gem Grubbin' began in Cleveland, Georgia in 1984.  It started as a commercial gold mine and opened to the public in 1984.  We have happily served the public since with an old fashioned philosophy...customer service!  We are family owned and operated. We would like to invite you to visit us and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and relaxing atmosphere here.
