Maple Ridge Lapidary Club.

Mine-Ores Home Page

The Mine-Ores is an activity group created for the younger members of the Maple Ridge Lapidary Club. Meetings are held approximately once a month and centre on activities designed for the age and abilities of the members. The Mine-Ores is designed to help children gain knowledge about amateur geology – also known as rockhounding - through field trips, identifying and categorizing specimen collections. Activities may include field trips, or an opportunity to participate in gold panning. Other activities can include the opportunity to meet other collectors and view their collections, visit local rock and gem shows, observe demonstrations of lapidary arts and meet show artisans and vendors. The Mine-Ores is led by Walt P and parents of the members assist with activities.

Family membership in the MRLC includes the opportunity for youth members to participate in the Mine-Ores. A small shop fee may be charged to cover the cost of materials and additional charges may be incurred to cover the cost of some activities – details will be provided in advance of such activities.

If you have questions or would like additional information about the Mine-Ores, please see Walt or any member of the Club Executive..
