Trying to find info on mines that are open to the public in NH, especially in Sullivan county. Would like to find some that don't want to gouge me to dig as much as Ruggles! Any info that anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the info sheet, but there's nothing in it on whether these spots are open to the public. Hoping to find further info on mines open for public prospecting - so I don't end up with a trespassing charge!

Hiking the Mica Mines in Alstead NH - YouTube


you can look up each mine site individually - most have public access.



You need to join the mineral society to visit the Palermo mine in No. Groton. They sponsor field trips.

The Keene Mineral Club will get you access to the Wise mine in Westmoreland.

Surry - Old Walpole Rd - route 10 (exit 12A n) cross the tiny bridge and you'll find botroydal hematite in the embankments.

Unfortunately, some mine sites have closed to the public because of litter and problems.


I don't find Ruggles mine that expensive. It's less than $20 for the day.

There are places in the Moat Mts, Hurricane Mt and other places in the NFS areas you can go to and hunt free for so long as it pleases you. The problem is this is in Carroll County, and you don't seem to want to go there.
