Featured Speaker:
Terry Huizing — Collecting Geode Minerals in the American Midwest"
Terry E. Huizing, a consulting editor of Rocks & Minerals magazine, is Adjunct Curator of Mineralogy at the Cincinnati Museum Center and focuses his personal collecting activities on calcite, pseudomorphs, and minerals from the American Midwest.

Minerals found in the carbonate rocks of the American Midwest are well crystallized, beautiful, and abundant. Spectacular crystals occur in a wide range of habits, color, and association with other min - erals. Collectible minerals from the Midwest occur at mines located in Mississippi Valley-type deposits, at limestone quarries, and within quartz geodes occurring only in rocks of Mississippian age.

Terry’s talk will feature a great number of photos of the mineral species found at three important geode fields.

Mineral Symposium Field Trip — Bursum Mine
The Bursum Mine (aka U.S. 60 Mine) is located in the Luis Lopez Manganese Mining District immediately south of Socorro along U.S. Highway 60. The mine is unique in the district in that it produced banded goethite and hematite in greater abundance than manganese oxide minerals. Botryoidal and stalactite specimens have found their way into collections and museums around the country. Portions of the deposit have been recently reclaimed by the hosts of the trip, Alan Perryman and Richard Overley, and the rest of the deposit is on state land. Meet at the shrine along U.S. 60, (mile post 133) west of Socorro at 9:00 a.m. Friday, November 10, to be escorted to the collecting site by Alan and Richard.
