Upcoming Programs
July & August | September | Wildacres

Wednesday, July 16, 2003 

Meetings start at 7:30 p.m. 

For our July and August meetings, club members have agreed that we will split a long videotape program into a two-part series, featuring half of the video program at each of the meetings. We will probably view the series from 2002 called, "What's New in Minerals, Part I," by Jeff Scovil and then "What's New in Minerals, Part II," by Bill Pinch.

Enjoy an informal gathering of fellow rockhounds and catch up on the latest happenings. 

On September 17, Erich Grundel will give a presentation on "The Silverland of Canada: Cobalt, Ontario." His presentation summary says that nothing before or since has matched the phenomenal richness of the Cobalt ores. In less than 25 years, the district laid claim to being the third largest producer of silver, ever - a fact that was valid until recent times. He says the importance of Cobalt to Canada is not unlike the importance of the California Gold Rush in the U.S. Of special interest to mineral collectors are the numerous dumps that are open to them for collecting.

This fall, September 2-8 the EFMLS is sponsoring several lapidary and jewelry making workshops at the Wildacres Retreat in North Carolina.  For details and class listings go to amfed.org/efmls/wildacres.htm
