Returning to the University of Arizona department of mining and geological engineering for graduate school was the best investment M. Stephen Enders ever made.
“My life changed entirely after I got my PhD from the UA in 2000,” said Enders, an economic geologist who headed worldwide exploration for Phelps Dodge and Newmont Mining before becoming interim head of the department of geology and geological engineering at the Colorado School of Mines.
Hardy holds more than 40 years of technical and operational mining experience, with expertise in cost control, due diligence, strategic mine planning and feasibility studies. He is a registered professional engineer.
Among the varied offerings was the Modern Mining booth, which allowed interested young engineers to investigate the impact of mining on Arizona’s economy and to explore the changing nature of the discipline as it embraces sustainability.
On Tuesday, May 3, seniors from every single department in the College of Engineering – including, for the first time, MGE – will gather on the UA Mall and in the Student Union to present capstone design projects.
Join us from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. to check out more than 100 student projects.
Pamela A.K. Wilkinson, education outreach coordinator with the Lowell Institute for Mineral Resources, received the 2016 Ivan B. Rahn Education Award from the Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration for her dedication to educating Arizona schoolchildren and adults about responsible mining and the role of minerals in everyday life.
This is UA's second win in a row, as University Distinguished Professor Mary Poulton was honored with the Rahn Award last year.
And in December, the Mining Foundation of the Southwest elected three MGE alumni to its board: Eben Robison, president; John Fenn, treasurer; and Andrew Soderman, secretary.
