My name is Scott Smith. I operate one of the last remaining small underground hardrock gold mines in Nevada. My plans for the near future include opening a hardrock mining school at our mine in central Nevada. Our classes will include drilling and blasting, ground support, mining methods, etc. Hands on experience will be a large part of the instruction. I have posted this ad to find out what kind of intersest there would be in this type of program. Classes are slated to begin in the summer of 2004. If you are interested or have any questions please feel free to contact me at Prices/times are yet to be determined.
