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. We focus on the technology of mining and related industries, including mineral processing, transportation, safety, environmental impacts, and economic and cultural aspects of mining. The Archive Reading Room is available by appointment.
