Located in Beautiful Peterborough, Ontario
The trip in the Malone Marble Quarry was joint by 3 different clubs. 6 members from Kawartha, 4 from Picton and 4 from Kingston club. We was lucky,the gate was open and we could drive all the way to the back dump . A lot of rocks was busted and material checked out for minerals .Minerals collected: Epidote, Vesuvianite, Axinite
Barite and Calcite. The Minerals are mostly in Calcite and have to be etched out with acid. So a lot of rock was loaded to be prepared at home. We are very thank full to the property owner for the permission to collect.
The attached pictures are Axinite and Vesuvianite from last years trip and the small group Vesuvianite is from this year April trip. I think we was all tired in the afternoon and I hope that all trip members got good mineral samples.
