Garry, Woody and I headed out to check out a road cut in the Greenwater area. Arriving at about 10:00am, we started digging in an area that had been recently dug.
However, I started finding material in the tailings pile, so we climbed up the short slope and started digging away.
Any time you are digging near a road you should always make sure you don’t roll any rocks into the road bed. Remember SAFETY FIRST!
We spent about three hours at this spot and the material was mostly compact quartz with some whitish agate.
There were also a lot of pieces with vugs in them that were filled with crystals. I haven’t identified all of the crystals yet but it appears that most of them are small quartz.
I don’t know if we will ever return to this spot, but it was fun to spend a day enjoying the company of good friends.
Thanks for joining us.
