Mon, November 27, 2023  SAN DIEGO, CA – SDMG General Meeting

Sponsor:  San Diego Mineral & Gem Society

Venue:  SDMG Bldg, at the back of Spanish Village in Balboa Park, San Diego

Hours:  7:00 PM

Admission:  Free. Open to the public.

Parking is limited behind the SDMG Bldg, so it's first come, first served. Look for additional parking in the Carousel parking lot near Park Blvd. or in the Zoo parking lot.

Our guest speaker will be Richard Edley, who will give a presentation on Gem Mineral Prospecting: S. California & Australia. Richard and his son Bruce have been prospecting and mining in the Southern California Desert for 20 years. They own two federal mining claims near Barstow, California, which have produced gold, silver, turquoise, and azure malachite. The presentation will be about their experiences prospecting and mining in the Southern California desert, their discovery of emeralds in the Julian Mining District, California, and opal and turquoise in Australia. Articles about these discoveries have been published in Gold Prospector and GIA’s Gems & Gemology. We'll have refreshments and door prizes. By all means, please bring something to share at the refreshment table. Everyone is welcome and we hope you'll have an enjoyable time.
