Rock and Mineral Club set to meet

ISHPEMING — The Ishpeming Rock and Mineral Club will be meeting at 1:30 p.m. Sunday at the Cliff Shaft Mine Museum, 501 W. Euclid St., in Ishpeming.

Doors will open at 1 p.m. to allow members and visitors time to bid on silent auction specimens and to view the club’s mineral collection.

Steve Whalen from the Copper Country Rock and Mineral Club will talk about his adventures “Collecting Amethyst at the Thunder Bay District of Northern Ontario.” Whalen will bring samples of specimens found there and will review localities to visit where you can collect in that region. He will also review some information people need to know to plan a trip to that region.

A door prize drawing, a 50/50 drawing and a business meeting will follow the program.

Everyone is welcome to attend, enjoy, and learn about the wonders of modern mining and rocks and minerals. There is no admission charge.
