Field collecting and sharing is generally my approach with mindat.org I've been collecting minerals since 2014, and have collected from the Ottawa area all the way through to the Renfrew-Frontenac counties through the Bancroft area of Ontario; as well as some spots north of Ottawa in Quebec and the Adirondacks, New York state. Please feel free to ask about any site associated with my photos, as they were all collected at some point in the field.

Currently I am a member of the Mineral Interest Group/Ottawa Lapsmith and Mineral Club(OLMC) in Ottawa, as well as the Kawartha Rock and Fossil Club(KRFC), and the Kingston Lapidary and Mineral Club(KLMC)Ontario, Canada. Collecting at the old localities and some newly found ones is both a very exciting, and yet quite relaxing experience for me. It gives further purpose to collect interesting specimens that might aid in research or gives excitement to others who appreciate seeing an unlikely find.

Below is a fantastic link to an article concerning collecting that I deemed worthy of keeping on my homepage:
