About mid-morning, we moved to the other side of the farm property to a location where crystal clear quartz and tormaline could be found. Tom had found a location at this site where tormaline could be dug after the old pit was drained of water. Several members found some very nice tormaline.

About 11:30 we all packed up and headed for Amelia for lunch. The selected McDonald's happened to be only a couple of miles from our next dig - the Moorefield Mine. After a good lunch, we headed to the Moorefield for an afternoon of collection and mine tours.
