Mining Myths, Mining Realities—Opening Thursday, May 10

A message from Julie Hill (Mackay School for Earth Sciences and Engineering): the Shared History Program and the Students of History 311 have put together a wonderful exhibit: Mining Myths, Mining Realities, opening Thursday, May 10th at Lincoln Hall, Room #120 on the UNR Campus beginning at 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM.

Dr. Anita Watson of the History Department reached out to Mackay for help on this project, and many of our Executive Advisory Board members, faculty, and greater Mining Community stepped up to help. Some of our Mackay professionals were interviewed by History 311 students as part of this oral history project. Thank you, Mackay Community for helping to make this a success!
