Dwarves' Earth Treasures Online
Wolverine #2 & #4 Mines, Kearsage,
Status: Ownership unknown but OK to Collect at one's
I found one datolite nodule while looking for the
agates with copper inclusions in August 2005, and I came back to the
place and found more in August 2006. As of August 2007, I did some
in an attempt to locate the source of datolites out of hope that I
find larger datolites, and all I found are tiny datolites. All
datolites found at the Wolverine Mine are enriched in copper. The
tiny datolites still can be found from time to time at the Wolverine
and there had been reports of datolites slightly bigger than an inch
from the dumps. Few more may come up as it get bulldozed for copper
replacement agates (or "Copper Agates" for short). Some datolites
are also found at nearby Wolverine #4 when its rocks were hauled away to
be crushed to make roads.

All with flakelike copper inclusions.
