A modest but attentive crowd gathered at the Ontonagon Township Library on the first weekend of October for our third annual Rock and Mineral Event.


This year's event featured a talk by author-historian Daniel Fountain. His recent book, Michigan Gold and Silver, is a favorite among local geology and history enthusiasts.


After Fountain's presentation, which combined the author's own impressive research with period photographs and documents, local collecters were able to check out one another's collections.
