Events News & Events : April 18th Educational Meeting: Gold Mining with Rich Hussy
Posted by Alyssa on Tuesday, April 02, 2019 (19:44:25) (111 reads)

This month our speaker is Rich Hussy from the Mother Lode Goldhounds, who is doing a presentation on gold mining. Rich has been panning since 1998 and will tell tales and maybe some secrets!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Our Junior Rockhound/Pebble pup Meeting will start at 6pm!
Please bring a snack for the Kids Potluck after their activity has concluded!

From Glenda: It was so wonderful to see so many of you at the March meeting! We talked about the mineral of the month, Wulfenite, and I enjoyed learning about and making miniature rock collections with you. I hope you are inspired to continue to collect miniature and thumbnail specimens in the future. When it comes to rocks, remember, bigger isn’t always better!

This month we will be learning about GOLD!
Join us for an activity with Justin Ferrell where we will learn the techniques of gold panning, using pyrite as our material. You will even get to keep the pyrite!

April is here and spring is in the air... which means warm weather that will be perfect for going on rockhounding field trips. Hooray! Spring is also a great time to go rock hunting because the rain can wash away sediments and reveal new layers of minerals. Alyssa and I will be planning some field trips just for you, to be announced at the May Jr. Rockhounds meeting.

Please make sure your membership is up-to-date so that you can join in on all the fun!

After the presentation there is a potluck as usual followed by the Monthly Challenge, the live Rockhound Auction and more!

Our Junior Rockhound/Pebble pup Meeting for 2019 will start at 6pm! This month we have Glenda who will be doing "Mineral Collection Collages".

Get ready to dream about what the future will bring!

Whether its a beautiful outdoor rock garden, a nice specimen collection neatly organized on a shelf or an entire room dedicated to rocks, this is a chance to share your vision.

Each person will have fun creating a beautiful poster board collage to represent their dream mineral collection & hopes for their rock-hounding future.
Using various gem & mineral magazine cutouts and stickers, we will create a picture of what we hope our future collections will look like.

Blunt tipped Scissors, magazines, glue sticks, and posterboard will all be provided. Just bring your imagination (and a snack for the kids' potluck before the Main Meeting starts)!
