Time: 7:30 pm
Location: GMS Building
Speaker: Jame Riley
Topic: The Viburnum Trend

Our speaker this month will be will be Jame Riley. Jame was a speaker at the Tellus Museum for the 2017 mineral symposium and the 2016 rockfest. His talk for the GMS will be on the mining area found in southeast Missouri known as the Viburnum Trend. This is the home of several well-known mines such as the Sweetwater and Brushy Creek. These mines are host to a number of world class mineral specimens of calcite, marcasite, fluorite, and sphalerite. Come join us as we learn more about this great topic.

Note: We will be meeting on the third Monday this month since Labor Day falls on the first Monday.
