This website or the contributor can't guarantee the information here to be accurate or to be up-to-date, although that is the intention for the data. Illegal activity or property damage is not the responsibility of this website, but each visitor is encouraged to review the Rockhound Code of Ethics. Each website visitor is advised also to consider reference sources listed and outside sources in their research before visiting the location.
Location Type: Public Access
Details: This site is free according to a 1995 mailing list, but would require permission ahead of time from the owner. I don't know if ownership is still the same with Combustion Engineering. It is reported to have Lava, Lazurite, Quartz, and Rutile. You can find this information from the source at Bob's Rock Shop Georgia Collecting Sites webpage.
Directions: The website gives vague directions. It says 5 miles away from Lincolnton. On google earth, it looks like it is located southwest of Lincoln off of Washington Highway (highway 47). Going that direction, turn south somewhere between Crook Rd. and Hephzibah Church Rd. There is a turnoff between then, and there are turnoffs from those roads. If you contact the ownership you will receive better information if they still allow visitors to collect.

Thanks for the info.  A friend of mine here in Arkansas goes there every year.  I hope to some day.
