About the Archive

Telling the story of mining through technology, resources and people 

The Russell L. & Lyn Wood Mining History Archive was established in 1995 through the generous donations of former Mines Board of Trustees member Russell L. Wood and his wife Lyn. The Archive supports research on the history of mining, with emphasis on Colorado and the US West. Our focus:

  • Technology of mining and related industries (mineral processing, blasting, transportation, safety, etc.)
  • Environment, land use
  • Economic and human aspects of the mining industries
