Blanchard Rock Shop Business Card

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: Private Property
Details: Another location where flourite is likely found. Like the Desert Rose mine, I think you might have to go the Bingham Rock Shop first. More of a mineral list is: fluorite, galena, barite, selenite, smoky quartz, quartz, amethyst, wulfenite, linarite, and brochantite.  The information that will get you there is found on http://www.peaktopeak.com/blanchard/index.htm
Directions: Bingham is just a rock shop. You need to go to the rock shop to pay for access to the mine.  Here are the directions: "The Blanchard Rock Shop is located on Highway 380, about 1 hour and 45 minutes south of Albuquerque, New Mexico, in Socorro County. It is halfway between San Antonio and Carrizozo at mile marker 30 on U.S. Highway 380, in the "town" of Bingham, New Mexico"
