NMA News: Minerals Make Life Toolkit at National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum



Minerals Make Life Toolkit at National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum

Not only is the recent redesign of the Minerals Make Life toolkit informative, it is also museum quality. After receiving the new toolkit in late 2012, Guy Johnson, exhibit coordinator for the Colorado Mining Exhibit Foundation, requested permission to use images from the “Minerals Make America” toolkit in a gallery the foundation sponsors at the National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum located in Leadville, Colo.

The gallery, “Mining in America,” features photos, graphics and information on minerals mined in the U.S., modern mining methods and reclamation projects. According to Johnson, “The exhibit is an example of how mineral industry outreach groups can cooperate to maximize impact on target audiences – in this case civic minded people who visit museums, and tend to be voters – plus teachers.”
