A NEW-GENERATION PROSPETOR
« on: October 29, 2010, 11:58:51 PM »

I wish to take this opportunity to introduce our family’s fourth generation of prospectors, Grampy’s pride and joy.  At only 26 months, this exceptionally bright young tyke sure has his prospecting perspective in order.  And so serious about it, too !  Braxton, my first grandson, has long since had his very own personal rock collection – of which comprises, believe it or not, some exceptionally nice specimens which he gathered himself.  Five stars goes out to this budding Junior Prospector.



ANNOUNCEMENT

GPEX is very pleased to announce that in the near future, it will be bringing forth, the ‘Junior Prospectors Forum,’ specifically tailored to offer today’s and tomorrow’s young prospecting enthusiasts with all the social amenities we, the current generation, now enjoys.  This new Forum venue will be accessible only by children under the age of sixteen, whereafter, their memberships will automatically be transferred over to our adult Forum.  The adult group will be able to view their posts, however, we will not have inner access to their site nor submit posts.  Our objective, beyond providing a positive social media for children interested in geology, is to aid in advancing their knowledge of the geo-sciences.  Membership in the Junior Prospectors Forum will be open to all children globally who bear an interest in geology.

Somebody said that it couldn't be done
But he with a chuckle replied
That maybe it couldn't but he wouldn't be one
Who'd say so until he had tried.

What a great idea Larry. Anyone else have kids or grandkids with a nose for prospecting or rockhounding?

Does this mean we can now make references to darker humour and illegal contraband? Lol

Great Larry. You're a generation ahead of me. I didn't have anyone in prospecting or mining growing up but my 2 girls and 4 grandkids are on their way. Great to see the young ones getting involved.
