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.
Please join us at the 37th American Mining Fall of Fame Awards Ceremony & Banquet at the J.W. Marriott Star Pass Resort in Tucson on Saturday, December 7th.

Since 2015 the Mining Foundation of the Southwest has financially supported the podcast produced by the Arizona Geological Survey, "Arizona Mining Review". The very first episode was filmed in January 2013, then part of a year-long celebration of the Arizona Geological Survey's 125th anniversary. Carson Richardson, AZGS Economic Geologist hosted the latest episode, following the footsteps of Lee Allison, Nyal Neimuth, Mike Conway and Phil Pearthree.
On 14 November 2019, the 50th episode of the Arizona Mining Review (AMR) e-Video Magazine was filmed with Arizona Silver Exploration VP-of-Exploration, Greg Hahn at the AZGS studio at 1955 East 6th Street.
