Field Trip Information

As a stated Internet policy of the Georgia Mineral Society, we do not give out non-commercial mineral/fossil location information and directions over the Internet.

GMS and the other federation clubs try to educate the public in the earth sciences through our field trip collecting policies and the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies (AFMS) code of ethics. As a member of a mineral society which is associated with the AFMS and the Southeast Federation of Mineralogical Societies (SFMS), GMS members are bound by these code of ethics and are covered by liability insurance; the general public is not. Therefore, we do not publish directions on the internet. We do, however, list a number of commercial (fee) locations on our website under the Field Trip menu, then Commercial Sites

Every field trip participant must be a member of the Georgia Mineral Society (or an invited club).

In addition to many other benefits, members of GMS receive early notification of all GMS news announcements including current field trips via e-mail. Members also receive our famous newsletter "Tips and Trips" which contains field trip information as well as club news and other interesting articles.
