Throughout the year we are involved in an expanding set of events to highlight the worlds of mineralogy and geology.

Annual Conference

The New England Mineral Conference (NEMC) is an annual event where everyone is encouraged to showcase the diverse wealth of New England minerals and those that study, mine, and collect them.

A group of like-minded mineral miners, collectors, enthusiasts and scientists have collaborated to form the New England Mineral Association (NEMA) in order to reach out to everyone in New England (and beyond) who is interested in the mineralogy found in this area of the country. Our goal is to bring everyone together, to share information and knowledge and to learn from each other in the process.
Whether a beginner or a professional, everyone is welcome!
