Educational Outreach

Mission Statement

“The mission of the CSSGA’s Education Outreach Committee is to create a better understanding among the citizens of Colorado regarding the importance of the aggregate mining industry. The Committee will collaborate with other local and national resources, as needed, to achieve this goal.”

Education Outreach Committee Overview

This Committee was formed in 2014. The Committee is currently in the process of developing two presentations both of which highlight the importance of the aggregate mining industry in Coloradans’ lives – including economic benefits and the effect on everyday life, such as the reclamation process. One presentation will be comprehensible for adults, the other for K-12 students. These presentations will be universal enough to be presented by both Associate and Producer Member Companies’ employees, while malleable enough to be formatted for specific localities.

We encourage members to use the resources and handouts available on the Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration’s website and Minerals Education Coalition’s website.
