New Rock Hounding Books Available

Dear Rock Friends,

Rockhounding season is here, and to celebrate we have two new rock hound books, a book signing, and a rock hammer sale!!!

Book one--“A Guide to Gold Panning in Utah” by Alan Chenworth.—hot off the presses last Saturday--is an in-depth book on where to go gold panning in Utah. Alan, who I have known for years, has actually visited each site and has given the exact amount of gold found in each location. The maps practically say “dig here to find gold.” He also tells which sites in Utah have been rumored to produce gold but don’t. The book is a bargain at only $12.95. Take a sneak peak at the cover at A Guide to Gold Panning in Utah.

This Saturday (April 7, 2007) from 10am to Noon, Alan Chenworth will be here at the store to sign copies and answer questions about the book. This is a great opportunity for some first hand information!

DURING THE BOOK SIGNING we will have a big Estwing tools sale, including the hammers, chisels, GOLD PANS, etc.

Book two--“Geodes, Natures Treasures” is all about geodes from around the world. It even has the correct geodes pictured from Dugway, Utah (unlike Gem Trails of Utah which has Mexican geodes pictured for Dugway geodes).

The book is written by Brad Cross and June Culp Zeitner. Both authors have written many books on agates and lapidary materials and are two of the most respected names in the industry. The book is loaded with pictures and info for only $21.95.

Finally, a hearty congratulations to Ken Rockwell of Salt Lake City. He is the winner of our rock hammer drawing. Thank you to everyone who took the time to comment or shop on our new website cart. We’re working on implementing your suggestions!

We hope to see you Saturday!

Rick & the Gang
