The Franklin Mineral Museum         Broken link?

Field collecting and mineral identification are an important part of our program along with mineral science, geology, and local mining history, we also touch on the science of archeology and anthropology. Students having completed the museum tour will have the opportunity to collect on the world famous Buckwheat Mineral Dump. This 15 acre tract of land is what is left of an enormous discard pile of lean ore, pegmatite, volcanic intrusive and more. Hundreds of different mineral species have been found there over the years. The museum can provide mineral check lists as a teaching tool for teachers.
