March Campout Geology

Posted by cstewart on Mar 18 2019 - 8:24pm


This campout will give Scouts an opportunity to learn about quartz mining in Arkansas and potentially earn the Geology Merit Badge.  Dr. Carter is serious about rock collecting and will run a merit badge class at a Troop meeting prior to the trip.

For the campout itself, we will camp in Texarkana to lessen the distance on Friday and Sunday for travel.  On Saturday, we will travel to Ron Coleman Mining in Jessieville, Ar.  We will dig for quartz, possibly ride a zipline, and possibly do a short tour of the mining operation.  Scouts should come back with some quartz (it is hard not to find some).  Some may come back with a few nice crystals.  Around 4:30, we will return to camp, have dinner, and enjoy a campfire.

The website for Ron Coleman Mining is:  https://colemanquartz.com/
