Our January meeting featured David K. Joyce speaking on the Cobalt Mining District. Having studied at the nearby Haileybury School of Mines, having collected in the area for over 50 years and having co-authored the Mineralogical Record article on the locality, David is more than qualified to cover this topic.
David’s presentation covered the geology, mining history and mineralogy of the area. The presentation featured wonderful photographs of mine sites and minerals from various collections including the ROM.
