Lord-willing, I'll be arriving there around 10:30am, and I hope it rains a little tonight to expose some crystals.  They will try to bring out new material around 9am if it is not too wet.  They may have done that today too.

I will be returning to this mine tomorrow (saturday 11/16).  Come and say you're with "NWA Gem and Mineral Club" and you may get a small discount.  Go ahead and meet directly at the mine and you can pay the guy there.  Directions going south on Highway 7 from I-40: going South on highway 7 through Jessieville turn right on 298, go 8 miles take left, go 1 mile take right, go 1 mile take left, go 1 mile take right, go 1/2 mile take left - or follow the signs from highway 298
