Working the Tripp Mine 9/01/09

Well just when I thought the new location of the Wayne/Lee pit road was set it changed. The plan was to move the road from the pit side to the wall side of the W/L pit and then drop the pit side rim down to the water. We started that effort and hit some very good pegmatite.

2009 CVM Club outing to the Tripp Mine

This year was Connecticut Mineral Club’s 5th outing to the Tripp Mine. Each year the outing gets better and Lee & Wayne put more work into it. For me it is just a great party.
When a club comes to the Tripp Mine, I prep one of the (new blast material) pits just for their outing. The dumps and other dormant pits are also open for collecting. This year the Santospago pit was prepped for the CVM and the shovel-winning specimen came from this pit.
