Mining, minerals showcased on Arizona Experience
We rolled out "Mining and Mineral Resources" as the March theme on the new virtual Arizona Experience website last week, with new materials being added throughout the remainder of the month.
The new content includes video interviews, historical photos, oral histories, interactive maps, and slide shows. Featured artist Jeff Scovill, of Phoenix, shows how to take world class photos of mineral specimens. The Mason Coggin photo collection is also on display.
