Historic Mine Visit and Discussion 2021 Jun 17, 2021

Join ABWF Atlas contributor Pat Pierson (retired Forest Geologist) and Ennis Geraghty (previously with the Stillwater Mine) as we explore the chronology of events pertaining to historic mining in the Stillwater and Nye Mining Districts with a special focus on the Mountain View Mine.

With this amazing crew providing locally sourced knowledge, we invite you to connect more deeply with the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness by better understanding its geology and relationship with mining.

Meeting location and time: 9AM at the Old Nye Picnic Area and Fishing Access site, about 1 mile north of Stillwater Mine. We will then caravan up to the historic mine.

Group Considerations: We will cap our group size at 20 people and ask folks to remain six feet apart throughout.
