Welcome to Dale's Diggings site.
We offer local minerals and metals from upper Michigan, we also offer other specimens from around the world.
Living locally in copper country, we can offer guide service, maps, metal detector rentals, where it is legal to hunt as well. One can find specimens from great micro's to hundred pound pieces of copper float.
There is now two "copper weeks" where there is organized digs, presentations, plus two rocks shows, one in Ishpeming, and one in Houghton. I will add the info down in the blog threads. We had multiple club's come up last several years, and they have always done great! Plan to do some hunting up in the y00per. The area covers the iron and copper ranges and their assorted minerals and metals.

We will be adding Keweenaw Point agates, silver, copper artifacts, copper crystals plus other items. we have about 200 more specimens to add during the month. Please check them out.
