Mining by Collector’s Edge Minerals, Inc., continued at or near the locality for several years, but results are not summarized here.  The district continues to produce amazonite and smoky quartz along with other minerals, though most collecting is by hand which limits the amount of specimen material available to the collector. 


Collector’s Edge wishes to thank Bill Tanaka for his help in creating the graphics for this article.  Also, Collector’s Edge wishes to say goodbye to George Robertson, a faithful friend and partner on the Two Point project, who passed away just three months before the “big find”.
