Professor Ron Peterson of Queen's University described his 2012 trip to the Gun Claim in the Yukon, 155 kilometers northeast of Ross River. (See Gun Claim)
His intrepid group of four were flown in to the site by helicopter and had the usual "luxurious" accommodations one can expect on a mountain pass! The focus was the rare and unusual barium minerals that are found in this area. Professor Peterson brought along some specimens to view in person including a red gillespite.
Professor Peterson has spoken at the Walker Club many times in the past and has proven to be an amiable, interesting and entertaining speaker.
