Freeport donation to help keep Mineral Museum doors open

At last night's AGS dinner meeting, president Kevin Horstman reported that Freeport McMoRan is donating $250,000 to help keep the Mineral Museum open and operating at the University Arizona. Budget cuts in January prompted the university to close the museum and Flandreau Science Center to the public.
