Education Coordinator Emma Reynolds,  Curator Myles Gallagher, and Events Manager Francine Webber participated in the combined Society of Mining, Metallurgy, & Exploration (SME) and Colorado Mining Association's (CMA) conference.  It was a great conference with 800 exhibitors and 6,600 attendees from around the world.  The NMHFM crew manned a booth, interacted with exhibitors, and participated in various meetings and socials and had a great time educating participants about the NMHFM.  Emma, Myles, and Francine are grateful to the exhibitors who took the time to share with us the technological innovations that are moving the industry to a whole new era of innovation, productivity, and miner safety.
