Haven't heard of him. When hunting/fishing/hiking, I always keep my eyes open for exposed pegmatite with large grain-size. If you see granite with very large-grain components, it's a pretty good sign that the pegmatite cooled very slowly. If there is any sign of clevelandite and/or lepidolite in the outcropping, that would be a GOOD place to return with chisels and hammers and start poking around a bit. A new tourmaline find on a par with the Dunton mine pockets in Newry would probably command millions of dollars, especially since other native sources of tourmaline have played out in the intervening years.Did you hear about that guy that went to Alaska to look for diamonds? found them too. Maybe more than are in South Africa. I just saw a show on PBS about it. Can't remember his name though.
