All About Mining: 21st century mining for K-12 educators

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the CMA Education Foundation has decided to suspend the in-person classes and field trip components of this summer’s All About Mining course that were scheduled for June 18-26, 2020.

I would like to invite you to visit our new website at At first glance, you will not see major page changes, but you will see that it is now viewable on your smartphone. We have made the change from “old” platforms to updated, new ones, which will allow us to use a varied amount information for our lecture series. We are working to have more updates for next month’s article.

There are many ways you can support our education efforts. There is the traditional way of sending a check or making a wire transfer and there is the simple use of choosing us as your charitable foundation when purchasing from Amazon. All you have to do is choose Colorado Mining Association Education Foundation as your charity when you log onto and shop as you would normally; Amazon will award us a small percentage of your purchase with no extra charge to you.

Stay safe everyone!
