Many mineral collectors are independent rockhounds who go on field trips by themselves or with a friend. They Occasionally find a location to collect minerals from books or word of mouth. Belonging to a mineral club will help a collector or beginner in many ways that the lone collector may never know. Information is gathered by Federations across the nation and is passed on to the member clubs. Members of individual clubs receive this information via club bulletins and/or at regular meetings.
Monthly field trips are held, usually on the Sunday following the meeting, with chances of finding valuable specimens.Federations or clubs sometimes set up a special field trip to a quarry where the owner will set off a blast or turn over the dumps with an excavator to uncover new material. These outings are usually restricted to club members. Club Shows, Rock Swaps and Auctions are held by some clubs annually which can provide yet another source of hard to find specimens.
These are but a few of the numerous benefits enjoyed by club members. Contact the club nearest you and enjoy the benefits of being a club member and making new friends. All are welcome to check out our meetings at:
