In celebration of Boart Longyear’s 125th anniversary, June 3, 2015, a historic timeline and collection of artifacts dating back to the late 1800s is on display at the National Mining Hall of Fame & Museum in Leadville, Colo.

Exhibit artifacts include patented bit designs, an 1891 drilling services contract, early 1900s catalogs showcasing Longyear’s drilling products, and a San Francisco Chronicle story, called “The World’s Greatest Span,” featuring a photo of a Longyear drilling crew and its role in the creation of the Golden Gate Bridge. The exhibit also features personal items from founder Edward J. Longyear.

The exhibit can be viewed at National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum, the only federally chartered mining museum in the U.S.
