Mining Hall of Fame banquet scheduled for October

By |  August 16, 2021


The National Mining Hall of Fame & Museum (NMHFM) will host the 2021 National Mining Hall of Fame Induction Banquet at the Westin Denver International Airport hotel on Oct. 23.

According to NMHFM, this is a different venue than was previously announced.

The gala event will begin at 6 p.m. with a cocktail reception. Dinner will begin at 7 p.m, and a young professionals after-party will begin immediately following the inductions. Dress for the banquet is business formal.

This year’s inductees, selected by the National Mining Hall of Fame’s board of governors, are being honored for setting new and uniform standards and improving existing processes for feasibility studies and resource/reserve estimation, executive contributions, and proactive leadership in safety and diversity, innovative practical application of geostatistics, and lifetime contributions to the education of many of the world’s leading mining industry professionals. The 2021 inductees are Richard Bullock, Gary Goldberg, Harry Parker and Raja Ramani.

The Prazen Living Legend of Mining Award, named for mining artist Gary Prazen, will also be presented at the ceremony. The award recognizes an individual or organization for significant and sustained commitment to educating the public about the relationship of mining to our everyday lives through educational materials, programming and outreach. This year, the award will be presented to Elizabeth Arnold.

Individual tickets for the banquet are $250, with reduced pricing of $125 for professionals under 35. A table for 10 attendees is $2,500, or a sponsored table for 10 is $4,000. Part of the price of each ticket or sponsorship is tax-deductible and helps support the operations of the National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum, located in Leadville, Colorado.
