The Mining Foundation of the Southwest is a non-profit organization based in Tucson, Arizona. We are working to educate the public about mineral resources and the mineral extraction and processing industries and to honor outstanding accomplishments in the mining industry. Read about our activities in the April 2016 Concentrates or in the 2014 Arizona Daily Star article Foundation's Event Recognizes Achievements in Mining.
The 34th Annual American Mining Hall of Fame Awards Ceremony, Banquet, and Fundraiser will be held on Saturday, December 3, 2016. We thank our 2016 Sponsors for their generous support of our educational outreach activities. See the 2016 brochure for additional details and go to the Events Page to register online.
