Dr. Russell Calvin Boggs will be speaking at our meeting. He is the founder and curator of the North Cascades Mineralogical Research Institute and Museum.
Dr. Boggs will talk about the minerals of the Golden Horn Batholith at Washington Pass (Highway 20) in the North Cascades.
He will also give a brief talk on the plans for the North Cascades Mineralogical Research Institute.
The North Cascades Mineralogical Research Institute and Museum is a non-profit corporation to promote mineralogical research, operate a mineralogical research lab (XRD, petrographic microscope, and Electron Microprobe), and operate a mineralogical museum primarily related to the Pacific Northwest.
Mark your calendars and plan on attending. I would like to give him a warm welcome as he will be traveling from Marblemount during peak traffic time to speak to us.
Show ‘n Tell: A rock, mineral, or fossil you have in your collection from Washington, Oregon, or Idaho.
