Last night I accepted a Special Citation on behalf of AZGS from the Mining Foundation of the Southwest at their annual awards banquet and fund raiser for the American Mining Hall of Fame. The plaque says “Celebrating 125 years of service, beginning with the Office of Territorial Geologist in 1888, serving as a primary source of geological information to enhance public understanding of the geologic character, geologic hazards and mineral resources of the State of Arizona.”
The 440 attendees also saw a 2-1/2 minute video about AZGS and our history, produced by Mike Conway and Jordan Matti at AZGS. We'll post that on the AZGS website.
I was honored to be able to represent the organization and our dedicated staff, both present and past. It's satisfying to know that our work is deeply appreciated by our constituents.
