Abstract: This paper gives a method of obtaining imaginary quadratic fields whose class groups have at least three invariants divisible by 3. Complementary calculations have yielded a large number of imaginary quadratic fields having class groups with four invariants divisible by 3. Some numerical examples, previously unknown, are included.
