At its annual Pit & Quarry Hall of Fame ceremony, Pit & Quarry announced a partnership with the National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum. Through the partnership, the inductees in the Pit & Quarry Hall of Fame will be featured in the National Mining Hall of Fame in Leadville, Colo.

“It gives residence for the inductees and for their bios and for their life stories,” says Frank McAllister, chairman of the Mining Hall of Fame board. “So people can physically come and look at them and see them amongst their peers in the industry.”

The Pit & Quarry Hall of Fame inductee plaques will be hung near the entrance of the museum. McAllister also hopes to eventually incorporate a digital element to the museum.

“[By digitizing the museum,] we’d have the opportunity to not just show the fellow’s plaque, but we could also show a little bit about his life and where he worked and things like that,” he says.

P&Q and the Mining Hall of Fame plan to move forward with the partnership in 2015.
