The New “Digital” ALL ABOUT MINING!

The CMA Education Association is pleased to announce the new digital ALL ABOUT
MINING course is on the internet.  The digital ALL ABOUT MINING course describes the work of America’s mining industry and its value to our nation’s economy.  Now K-12 educators may take the 49 lectures in the course at their leisure from their home or school before coming to the Colorado School of Mines campus for a three day Refresher Course in a classroom setting.  This in-class session is followed by a five day tour of surface and underground mines, various processing facilities, and other mineral related facilities.  Upon successful completion of the three part course the educator will receive six graduate hours of licensure/recertification credit from CSM’s Continuing Education program.  Please tell all K-12 educators in your community about the new digital course found at

The three part course includes lectures by experts on geology, exploration, mining, metallurgy, environmental activities of mining, the use of minerals, and other pertinent issues about the mineral industry.  The course is designed to be viewed by anyone at no cost, but those wishing to receive the licensure/recertification credit must register as “Participant” at the beginning of the course.

The Directors of the CMA Education Foundation wish to thank those who contributed to the effort to develop a digital version of the course.  This course has been given for 45 years in a classroom setting at Colorado School of Mines to over 1,550 K-12 educators from all 50 states and several foreign countries. CMA was one of the initial contributors to this effort by making a $10,000 donation to its development.
