"Through this course, I have gained a significantly different and valuable perspective on what the current mining situation is in Colorado. The course has not only provided valuable lecture-style information, but through the various field trips, it has created a very hands-on and experience-based educational experience that I am excited to pass on to my students and staff. There is no question about the exceptional quality of the course; it has been one of the most valuable educational experiences that I have had, and I plan to recommend it highly to my colleagues." -Lausten,
"I knew that CSM offered great courses for teachers due to previous experience but this was AMAZING!" - Krista
"I went from knowing almost nothing about the industry and having feelings of skepticism towards responsible mining to understanding how critical the minerals industry is for our lives and how important to our society it is that we support this industry." Lindsey
