Wingate Pass Agates by Charles O. Walker, Jr GySgt USMC (Retired).
Our August presentation is on Wingate Plume Agate, aka DEATH VALLEY PLUME AGATE from North China Lake/ Death Valley California. It was discovered in 1953 and exhausted by the early 1960s. The area is now located within a Naval bombing range.
Charles has been gathering many different seam variations of the once famed collecting locality that has been off limits for decades. With that said, he concentrates on collecting the off limits and "can't get that anymore" rocks. Charles will show specimens of Wingate agate.
General meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month at 7PM at the
Downtown Anaheim Community Center
250 East Center Street, Anaheim, CA 92805
The April meeting is normally rescheduled as the Center is
closed for Maintenance.
Non-members are welcome at the General meetings, in fact we are glad to have an opportunity to show you a little bit of what the Searchers is about.
Standard meeting format is an overview of club activities followed by an educational presentation. See below for a schedule of presenters.
