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.
