(Left and above) Keith Long gives the 2018 Presidential Address, “The Perpetual Prospect.”  He describes how a mineral discovery becomes a perpetual prospect that remains undeveloped.  He uses the Bullard Mine in Arizona as a case study. On-line information resources are described.  Special recognition is given to Nial J. Niemuth who assembled the extensive Arizona mining archive during his 30-year career with the Arizona Department of Mines and Mineral Resources.  CLICK HERE to view Keith’s presentation.
