Field Trip to Damon Mound


 
When:
Aug 23  11 AM to 3 PM - Come any time in that period.

Who: Joint field trip for Houston Gem and Mineral Soc, Houston Geological Society, Houston Museum of Natural Science and anyone else who sees this announcement.

Cost: free

Host: Neil Yelderman of the 6E Ranch and Neal Immega of HGS,HGMS, HMNS.

Waver: Everyone will be asked to sign a waver by the land owner.

Location: About 50 miles from downtown Houston. Turn off on Hwy 36 south from Rosenburg, About .5 miles north of intersection of Hwy 36 and FM 1462, there is a very old billboard for the Dresser Atlas Quarry to mark the spot. Drive west until you see the headquarters car (red Honda CRV). I will put out orange tape to mark the road. Look it up on Google Earth (it is free) and put in these coordinates exactly to see where you are going.  Meet at N29.298785 W95.754633, Turnoff Hwy 36 at N29.304471 W95.736868

What to see: Caprock of the salt dome and the Miocene reef draped over it. Collect the abundant coral, pectens, rare urchins, and occasional sulfur blebs in the caprock. The Damon Mound salt dome has produced oil, sulfur by the Frasch process, and finally crushed stone.

Services: None at the salt dome, but there are plenty in Needville a few miles north. It will be HOT and yes there are fire ants, snakes and cattle.

We have run field trips to Damon Mound in the past and everyone had a good time. Normally there is a locked gate between you and the pit.
 
No reservations necessary - just come.
