Why do we say DownLODES instead of downloads? Because we're all about rocks! (A lodestone or loadstone is a naturally magnetized piece of the mineral magnetite). Learn more about magnetite on our DIG IT page!

Looking for a cool rock or mineral related poster to hang on the wall or other downloadable material about geology? You've struck a gold mine with this page! If you know of some cool geological or mineral-related downloadable material you'd like us to know about, please drop us a line with the event information to and we will get back to you!
