Chester Emory Mines trip 2012

This years Trip to the Chester Emery Mines was a combined trip with the Mid Hudson Valley Club from NY State. We ended up getting permits for the same weekend so decided to go together and show them where the Write Mine was located. It was a cool misty morning and about16 people total of both clubs met at the “Old Mine” parking area then traveled over to the “Write Mine” and made the trek into the mine dumps. The Write Mine dumps were cold, meaning they didn’t give up much for good specimens. Terry Robertson found the best specimen but moved a wicked amount of material for just the one piece! The NY club decided to go back to the “Old Mine” after lunch along with 3 or 4 CVMC members while 4 of us stayed at the “Write Mine”. In all everybody found some good specimens from both mines but nothing spectacular, we’ve had better and worse day on those dumps. It was still a great day of fall collecting at a classic MA location with good friends!
