On the third day of the Conference registrants who have paid for the Mineral Collecting Field Trip will meet at the designated location for a day of collecting. In general, this will be at a site closed to the public. However, there may be a choice of two locations, and there may be a limit imposed upon on how many people can attend by the location owners ... so register early.

For security and logistical reasons, the NEMC Field Trip location(s) will not be announced until Saturday during the Conference.

It is important to note: this Field Trip is only available to NEMC Registrants who have registered for the conference, and paid for the Field Trip.

Special Field Trip Rules:

PLEASE READ ... These will be enforced!

  • Registrants must wear NEMC name-badge!

  • Registrants may not bring non-registrants to the Field Trip.

  • Hand Sifting Screens only - 24" sq. max.
