Sterling Hill Mine
THE MINE RUN DUMP
The mine run dump area is perfect for both novice and avid mineral collectors. There are two main sections to our mine run dump, the International pile and the Local pile. The International pile contains diverse minerals from all over the world that people can dig through. The Local pile contains hundred of tons of high-grade zinc ore that was derived from the Sterling Hill Mine itself. Much of the ore in the local pile is full of highly fluorescent minerals. There is a shed on the mine run dump which has a shortwave ultraviolet light in which collectors can check their rocks and see if they do fluoresce.
April - June the Mine tour is Daily at 1PM.
