National Mining Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony 2020

November 19, 2020

The 33rd Induction Ceremony for the National Mining Hall of Fame was originally scheduled to be celebrated at a banquet in Lone Tree, Colorado on October 24, 2020. With COVID-19 forcing restrictions and cancellations of in-person events, our staff and Board were determined to find another solution that would not simply function as another online virtual meeting. Deciding to broadcast the event on a variety of social media platforms, the NMHFM engaged BCC Live out of Boulder, Colorado to produce a professional program. This program was recorded and may be watched at any time by clicking this link.

On October 24th, the National Mining Hall of Fame added five new inductees to its ranks, and presented the Prazen Living Legend Award to the followin
