The presentation for this Thursday, November 12, 2020. Will be done by Bob O’Black. He has a great presentation on fluorescents in rocks and minerals.

Bob Oblack is a retired electrical engineer from Tektronix. He has attended Dr. Bill Orr’s geology classes at Chemeketa Community College…to better understand the science that underlies our rockhounding hobby.
Bob has been a Rockhound ever since he was able to walk on the beach looking for agates. It’s “The Thrill of the Hunt” that drives his passion for Rockhounding. He joined the NARG fossil club and the Fluorescent Mineral Society to add breadth and depth to “The Thrill of the Hunt”.
Bob lives near the Molalla River and with support from the Molalla Culture and Art Committee created two videos about the Columbia River Basalt (CRB) flows and geologic points of interest within the Wild and Scenic Molalla River Corridor and traced the CRB flows from the Molalla River Corridor to the pacific ocean. These videos can be viewed on the Welcome Molalla YouTube channel.

Bob volunteers his time to help the Clackamette club promote their annual rock show. He shares his knowledge of Molalla Are Geology and Fluorescent Minerals with others via Home-Schooled-Children Field Trips and presentations like this.
