Did you know that Hawaii's Mauna Kea volcano is taller than Mount Everest - only, most of it is below the sea? Or that the oceans hold an estimated 20 million tons of gold?
Delve Into Geoscience with DIG Day! We're partnering with Engineers and Geoscientists BC for this fun and educational event. Family-friendly activity stations allow you to explore a different part of the wonderful world of minerals, fossils and more. We will also be pulling out some of our gold collection, normally not on public display.
Activities run from 11am to 3pm. Come see how cool geoscience can be! With thanks to Engineers and Geoscientists BC for collaborating on this event.
We'll be digging into our own collections to bring out our selection of gold samples for visitors to see.
