AGS Honorary Award to Don Hammer

The Arizona Geological Society awarded Honorary Life Membership to Don Hammer last night in Tucson [right, AGS president Kevin Horstman presents certificate to Don at the AGS monthly dinner meeting]

Don was feted for a combination of his service to the Society, most recent of which was an extended role as Chair of the Financial Committee, and his contributions to understanding the geology of Arizona. One example is Don's highly regarded work on the Magma mine in the Superior district.

Don retired after 30 years with Newmont Mining and has been consulting since.
