Did you know? New Hampshire and Vermont Gold is nearly a pure 24 Carat right out of the ground! This is some of the purest in the country! This lecture explores all aspects of the definition of “Gold”, noun, adjective, even metaphorically. Plus Pecora will share with you the Scams, Myths, and Facts about the most sought after metal on earth. Gold, truly is, made from the Stars! Yet this is Stardust, - that the common man can successfully collect. Especially around these parts! Yet be careful to note, the pursuit of Gold can drive a person to a point of insanity we call “Madness”. .
Mining Historian Jim Pecora Author Jim Pecora wears many hats at this stage of his life. He is a Mining Historian, Lapidarist, Jeweler, teacher & lecturer. Jim is the Executive Director of the “New England Mineral Museum” and Artistic Creator and Chief Educator of the “Mica Mine Schoolhouse Museum,” a traveling road show. These non-profits have goals to foster historic preservation at multiple locations in SW NH & VT. We offer educational initiatives spanning local, New England wide, as well as global outlets. A physical hands-on Visitor’s Center will be opening in 2018, and will be located in the heart of the Keene NH Mining district – Alstead, NH.
We will look at several mineral related mysteries and try to figure out how they happen. Rocks in Death Valley crawl across the desert floor leaving trails. How does this happen in the driest environment on earth? Don't forget to bring a specimen for our "Show and Tell".
See everyone there!
