Here's Thomas with Ron Coleman at the Coleman's Mine
Did you know clay from the Ron Coleman Mining mine is used for facial masks in spas? We asked our producer Leslie to try it out for our Arkansas episode. Looks pretty relaxing!
We are almost done editing our Arkansas episode, to be released January 2015 on Public TV! Here is Thomas with some young mineral explorers at the Wegner Quartz Crystal Mines in Mt. Ida, Arkansas.
Thomas and some mini-miners get a lesson in geology from Mike Howard, the geology supervisor/mineralogist for the Arkansas Geological Survey.
