Sawtooth Science Institute Course – A Mining Story
August 2 at 8:00 am - August 3 at 4:00 pm MDT
K-12 Professionals, join ICL’s Senior Conservation Associate, Josh Johnson and the Sawtooth Science Institute in this professional development course titled “A Mining Story.” The course will be looking at the early history of Idaho and mining as the foundation of Idaho culture and learn something of “our Founding Fathers.” On day one, the group will discuss why Idaho has such prolific mineral deposits and visit the Triumph mine to discuss the ongoing cleanup and remediation at the site. On our second day, we’ll discuss the proposed Empire Mine near Mackay and look at both the environmental and community impacts of the project.
