Toveco is an offshoot of a passionate hobby of collecting minerals that has become a part-time job. A job the Toveco crew and I just love. The company owns and operates the Beauregard Mica Mine, Tripp / Clark Mine & the Goodhue Mine in Alstead, NH.
The main focus of these operations is the extraction of facet grade gem beryl & quartz. The Company is a true mineral collecting operation. We own the mines we operate along with the drilling & excavating equipment and other miscellaneous mining tools we use. I also hold all the licenses that are required to do this type of work. And it doesn't stop there; we maintain a mineral prep lab for the sales effort. And three of the crewmembers are Gem cutters.
The work it takes to bring a Wise Mine Fluorite crystal or a Beauregard, Tripp / Clark crystal or cut stone to market is eased by the fun the crew and I have wearing all these different hats.
