Hi guys,
I am working on an article on the Rogerley Mine – are you guys open this year? I checked the website and there are no new updates. Thank you, and I hope you managed to pull it off!
Thanks, Eric

Hello Eric,
We've been at the mine for the past month, and have managed to recover a few good bits, but without our miner and access to explosives, it's been slow going. I've been posting a few updates to Facebook, but otherwise lying low. We will be shipping our somewhat meager take this year back home next week. I'll be home in early September and hope to post some new specimens to the website. We will, as always, be at the Denver show.
Cheers,

August 6, 2016
