Does anyone have directions to the remnants of the Loudville Lead Mines in Easthampton, Massachusetts? I'm helping to schedule a trip with the Stamford Mineralogical Society for collecting, it is also a very important historic locality mined throughout the mid to late 18th century. Are the adits sill there? I assume they would be covered by eroded material if they did exist. Everyone interested is welcome to come with us, I have to set a date tenatively.
