Oct 20th, 2018 – Field Trip to Clipper Mine (by Carbonado)

On Oct. 20th we will be exploring the tailings pile of the abandoned Clipper Mine out past Carbonado in Pierce County. We will be looking for Copper, Azurite and Chrysacolla.

Meet 8:45 AM at the Rosie’s IGA Market (closed) behind the Chevron Station, 29393 WA-410, Buckley, WA 98321    Group leaves promptly at 9:00.

This will be a joint trip with the Puyallup Club. 

You will need hand tools: hand pick, plastic bucket or backpack. Sturdy hiking shoes, warm clothing and rain gear (last year we had a snow flurry, but it was beautiful).  We cross a creek, which can be a little tricky.  Managed last year to cross over on some large rocks.  It’s an easy 1/3 mile hike with slight elevation from the road to the mine. 

Note: verify meeting place and time the week before.

Roger Danneman cell # 425-757-3506.
