Field trip – 24 September 2022: Peter Lewis Memorial Goldpanning Excursion with Gordon Poole (FGS).

24 September, 2022 @ 11:00 AM 3:00 PM IST

Gold Panning in a scenic spot!

Join us for a most enjoyable training event, gold panning with geologist, Gordon Poole (FGS). This excursion is an Annual Meeting in memory of Past President of IGA, Peter Lewis for whom gold panning was a favourite hobby. The outing this year will take place at Bohernabreena, Co. Dublin.

IGA is most grateful to the Geological Survey of Ireland, and Senior Geologist James Hodgson in particular, for the loan of pans and sieves for this event where you can learn a skill and find a nugget (though we have only had shows of gold so far but several of them per outing!). No need to bring your own kit, but a pair of wellies and gloves are advised.

Please Book HERE for this memorable event!
