The Mineral group meets on the third Thursday (except June and December) of every month at 7:30pm at the club. The meetings are to provide information for club members wanting to further their knowledge of minerals, geology and the nature of rocks. The group offers the opportunity to progress into the testing and identifying of materials collected, and the means of identifying the terrain in which certain items may be found.

The Club has a large number of specimens which may be viewed for your interest, or may be used to compare with items you may wish to identify. You can learn how to classify, display and label a collection or a small group of specimens when you are a member of this group.

At times, professional people from the earth science professions come in to give a talk on various minerals, geology and gems.
