Treasure Valley Outing 2018
« on: June 26, 2018, 11:07:42 PM »
Once again we have an opportunity to do a weekend outing at Treasure Valley in Marion County, North Carolina. The potential weekend is August 4th weekend. The details will be the same as previous outings. I need to know how many would be interested.

Thanks,

Here is the information:

This is a weekend outing. It will begin Friday August 3 at 1:00 pm and end at 4:00pm on Sunday, August 5, Camping is available and included in the cost There are limited hookups available. Hotels are available along the interstate. The nearest Interstate access in exit 86 in Marion, North Carolina. It is approximately 10 miles from the property.

The property has a history of gold mining going back to the 1800s and is along South Muddy creek in Marion County. The cost per mining adult for the weekend will be $75. Children under 12 are free as are non-mining adults. Panning, sluicing, and dredging are available (a limit on the number of dredges will be imposed). The geology at this location is extremely diverse and includes not only gold, but corundum, epidote, topaz, smoky quartz. The geological features include pegmatites, amphibolites, and other ultramafic exposures. Diamonds have been found in South Muddy creek in the past.

You may arrive and leave whenever you need to but the cost will be the same.

I am contemplating something different for this outing that will be announced later.

Let me know if you are interested and any questions you have that I may not have answered.

Regards,

Al

I need anyone that is still interested in this outing to re-confirm so I can have a solid head count.

We are going to do something we haven't done in recent history for this one. The Chapter is going to sponsor this outing with $300 going toward the total. That means if we have then people it would be 10x$75=$750-$300=$450/10=$45 each.

We need to cap participation somewhere around 15 -20 people.

Thanks,

Thank you Allen Trotter for doing something for the GPAA members that $300.00 is a benefit for the members and that's what we need at this point and time for the club.

Keep up the good work Al
