This trip is to dig into hard shale for iron pyrites that come in mabe possible but I have not found any. Leave from G.J. onto I-70 to Wolcott exit go north on 131 highway to States Bridge just after the river bridge turn right on road that follows the river up the hill, about 3 miles easterly cross railroad tracks and park on the left side of the road........now the work will start as we WALK stumble through rough rock and willow covered edge of the river about a mile and half to area where the dig will begin. Brings lots of water, lunch, small sledge hammer,pointed chisel, flat chisel, anything to break into the shale, small shovel, hat shade, maybe even a pad to sit on,,,,,, just remember you have to carry it in and out. I have been there when there was a thunder storm with hail. Just make sure you know it is a long walk in poor conditions. thanks Wayne

How to find us:Look on the very west side of there parking lot, plan to leave at 7 am
