The Schedule Followed for The Season for 2016

This brochure and calendar was created late winter for pursuing an active recreational prospecting program for those who would like to get out and find minerals, gems, fossils and gold. We hope this helps you and your family's plans for the summer of 2016.  Please feel free to print yourself up a copy of this brochure for your planning.

This is page two of the brochure which delineates dates, times and places of rendezvousing for recreational prospecting gatherings. Further details would require a phone call, email or text. A different calendar listing will be added shortly but this suffices until then.
