Dig for buried Treasure in Canada’s Mineral Capital

Brigitte Gall collecting tremolite at the Grace Lake Road Occurrence

There’s no better way to get introduced to the rewarding outdoor activity of Rockhounding than to join up with an expert for a guided field-trip. In the Mineral Capital of Canada you can do just that. Bring the family and spend a day in the great outdoors hunting for buried treasure – just be prepared to get down and dirty with nature!

The Bancroft & District runs regular tours throughout the summer months to a number of popular destinations. Check with the Bancroft Chamber of Commerce for times and locations, or if you’re ready to break out “on your own”, pick up a copy of their newly updated collecting guidebook for more great places to dig.

After all that hard work, you might just want to spend the night and book a hot stone massage to ease those aching muscles. Call Yours Outdoors to book a full Rockhounding Getaway today!
