The University of Arizona's student Society of Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration chapter would like to cordially invite you to our annual Operators' Barbeque.

Entertainment will include:

  • Mine & Facility Tours
  • Horseshoes
  • P & H Shovel Simulator
  • Fire Suppression Simulator
  • Possibly jack leg drilling

We will start underground tours of the mine and other entertainment at 11AM. Lunch will happen at 1:30PM, followed by more tours and entertainment if time permits.

This year we will have all the payments made for the BBQ at the door. We will be able to take checks (made out to U of A SME), cash, and credit cards. The prices for the BBQ are:

  • Adult-------------------------------------------------$10

As always we would love to help your company showcase your equipment, so if you have some cool toys you would like to bring out please let us know. We will try to accommodate everyone we can, but space may be limited so let us know ASAP.

We hope to see you soon!
