Mining Field Trips

The best way to go on a gem, mineral or fossil dig is to join one of the 8 gem and mineral clubs in the Denver Metro area.  Annual membership for the entire family is usually less than $25.  Each club schedules several mining field trips in Colorado each summer.  Joining one or more of the clubs is a great way to have family fun as well as learn about a wide variety of gems, minerals and fossils.  Their names and contact information are shown below.  I’d highly recommend either the Littleton, RAMS, North Jeffco or Flatiron clubs for beginners.
