See: <http://www.wendtpottery.com/mcspar.htm> for update on Moose 
Creek  hi K feldspar.

   Michael Wendt has been working on this. It has been delayed for 
years by a lot of problems. They have to ship it across the country 
for beneficiation, since there  is apparently a lot of trash rock in 
the crude ore.

There used to be one here called Kingman Feldspar but it is not mined any more.

  I am waiting for some Moose Creek as it ought to be good in blue celadons.
