The Miners’ Story Project collects,
preserves and shares stories about life in the mines and mining
communities in the Southwest US.
These stories are captured on high
quality digital audio recordings, to enrich and enliven the exhibits at
the University of Arizona’s Mineral Museum. Recording sessions are held
in a mobile “Story Trailer,” which will visit towns around Arizona and
These stories will live for generations to come and will help young people (and even the young at heart!) learn about the history and importance of mining in Arizona and New Mexico.
The Miners Story Project is collecting
stories from miners and their families. From stories that capture
everyday life, to stories that capture amazing events, and everything in
between is being collected and preserved.
The Story Trailer will be staffed
by an interviewer who will run the recording equipment and ask questions
to get the stories flowing. Stories might start by describing an object
or a photograph that you bring in. We’ll talk about everything from the
life of a miner, to the practical jokes that kept the days short, to
the knowledge of stone and blasting that allows us to dig deep into the
The Miners Story Project is a

"MacKenna's Gold" (1969)
Starring Gregory Peck and Omar Sherif
The story of the Iron Door Mine.
Attempting to do for Westerns what his Guns of Navarone had done for
World War II action epics, director J. Lee Thompson crafted Mackenna's
Gold as a lavish, absurdly ambitious variation on Erich Von Stroheim's
Greed, resulting in a last-gasp Western so eager to encompass the
genre's traditions that it turns into a big, silly, wildly entertaining
mess. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com.

Printed book edition of Mackenna's Gold
A Five-time Spur Award-winning Author. Somewhere in 100,000 square
miles of wilderness was the fabled Lost Canyon of Gold. With his dying
breath, an ancient Apache warrior entrusted Glen Mackenna with the
location of the lode that would make any man - or woman - rich beyond
their wildest dreams. Halfbreed renegade and captive girl, mercenary
soldier and thieving scout - brave or beaten, innocent or evil, they'd
sell their very souls to possess Mackenna's gold. --This text refers to
