We were honored to celebrate our 2018 Heritage Awardees Mary Groves and Irving “Dudy” Groves ( 1919 – 2005 ) of Poland Mining Camps.  Mary is well known for her hospitality in her role as hostess at the Poland Mining Camps in Poland, ME. Dudy spent over forty years in the mountains of Maine mining at some of the most historical mines including Mt. Apatite and Mt. Mica.

Poland Mining Camps’ goal is to create a family of mineral collectors and enthusiasts from all walks of life, with every level of experience & expertise, international in scope and eager to enjoy this exclusive camp community and collecting opportunities. For many years they have hosted families and individuals through mines and quarries encouraging the love of mineral collecting.

MMGM Mineralogical Heritage Awards celebrate the sciences and arts integral to its mission: to communicate the significance of minerals in our lives, our planet and beyond.

The 2018 Annual MMGM Mineralogical Heritage Awards was held on Friday, May 11 at the Grand Summit Hotel in Newry, Maine  in conjunction with the New England Mineral Conference.
