The Mining Foundation of the Southwest is a non-profit organization based in Tucson, Arizona. We are working to educate the public about mineral resources and the mineral extraction and processing industries and to honor outstanding accomplishments in the mining industry. Read about our activities in the November Concentrates or in the Arizona Daily Star Foundation's Event Recognizes Achievements in Mining.
