For many years the Club has conducted the Copper Country Gem and Mineral Show
during the second weekend in August. Athough it is free to the public, it is a fund
raising activity for the Club. It starts Friday afternoon runs through Saturday and end
min-afternoon Sunday.
At the show 7 to 9 dealers, most non local, offer a wider variety of mineral, fossils,
gems, jewelry, and historical or mining item and documents. Throughout the show the
club holds a silent auction, provides displays of mineral or historical interests, and sells
magazines and club clothing.
During the show there is also a “Treasure Hunt” where children can
use metal detectors to hunt for copper and metal artifacts in a pile of sawdust.
Occasionally there have been demonstrations and/or lectures.
