GeoRaman 2014 Field Trip : Historic Lead Mining in Missouri

Date: Wednesday, June 18, 2014 - Field Trip Photo Gallery

There is a limit to the number of attendees who can take part in the field trip. All registered attendees up-to-now are guaranteed seats. Once the limit is reached, subsequent registrants will not pay the field trip cost (i.e., registration fee reduced). A field trip guide is included in the GeoRaman XI proceedings, and a 1-page overview is included in the conference bag you received at registration.

We will have two buses leaving at different times on June 18, 2014, at 8:00 am and 9:00 am. At the GeoRaman XI registration-check-in desk (June 15-17), Conference Assistants will ask you a few questions about the field trip options and will issue you a colored ticket that assigns you to a specific bus (and departure time). About 15 minutes before the scheduled departure time, please arrive at the designated gathering spot in front of Umrath lounge, pick up your boxed lunch, and board the bus. You may want to bring your field trip guide, downloadable here, which is also part of the GeoRaman XI proceedings book.
