12 August 2015: "Mace Mineral Collection" started by Greg Mace (born on this day in 1943).
This program will be hosted by Julie.
Its content is a bit of a mystery at the moment as no one in the family has seen the collection since the
mid-1980's. A discovery for all of us.
19 August 2015: "Modern Day Prospecting" with Robert Congdon
Robert moved to the Roaring Fork Valley in 1978. Logging, ranching and mining were the prevalent jobs.
The mines paid the best ($8.50 an hour) and he was attracted to the challenges of mining: the daily
struggle to figure out how to get the roof secure, deal with gasses and keep all the equipment running -
and it started him on a 35 year prospecting journey in Western Colorado and Eastern Utah. Locally
some of his notable finds have been the lost vapor cave mines outside of Redstone, a lost gold camp on
Mt. Sopris and the Alabaster Quarry at Avalanche Creek.
26 August 2015: "Crystal Healing Therapy" with Marierose and Eric Anthony
Understanding the how and why crystals have healing powers. You will also learn some of the ancient
history and the science behind some of the legends, in addition to balancing your body's energetic
centers with unique and locally found healing minerals.
