Celebrating Canada Through our Rocks and Minerals

Our 39th annual Rock and Gem Show and Sale titled, "150 Rocks Celebrating Canada Through our Rocks and Minerals", will take place October 28th and 29th 2017 from 10am to 5pm both days at Kyle Centre in Port Moody.

Canada will be celebrating its 150th birthday in 2017, and our club, its 50th birthday. To recognize this special year, we will be hosting a display of 150 Canadian rocks, fossils, and minerals and their respective stories at our show. This display will be a coast-to-coast-to-coast project; our goal is to feature rocks and minerals from each province and territory. In the spirit of celebration, we are asking rockhounds, mineral collectors, geologists, and paleontologists from across Canada for their help: what rocks do you think should be featured? Minerals, fossils, and rock of historical, scientific, economic, or lapidary value are all possibilities. Let us know what you think!

I am willing to loan samples for inclusion in the display:
