Looking for a trip back in time? Step into our time machine for this week’s Throwback Thursday on the School of Mines in Golden, Colorado.
The Colorado School of Mines was established in 1870, to help train the geologists and mining engineers who supported the Colorado mining industry.
Over the years, the school has expanded its programs as new technologies arose, beginning with mining in the 19th century, adding petroleum exploration in the 20th, and becoming a leader in renewable energy in the 21st.
