Educator Resources

Minerals play an important role in our everyday lives. Without mining, we wouldn’t have cars, cell phones, plumbing or electricity. Sharing what we do and how we mine these minerals with younger generations is important to educate students about our industry and how we make modern life possible.

Bring your class for a field trip to our new Visitor Experience at the Bingham Canyon Mine, or take them on a virtual tour of our operation. 

We also offer a 4th grade Mining Ambassador program in collaboration with the Utah Mining Association. Learn more about the opportunity and fill out your request form on the UMA website.

Teach your students about the mining process and the essential elements they use in their everyday lives with the Ore to More video.
