Update: Meeting time and place specified below is good.
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 at 8:45 AM 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: rock hammer, hand pick and bucket or backpack. Sturdy hiking shoes and warm clothing. Weather forecast looks good. We cross a creek, which can be a little tricky. We 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.
