ONA Youth Day


On June 28, 2013 – the Florida Section of SME took their road show to the 6th Annual Range Cattle REC Youth Field Day.

Jama Abbott, Wes Cummins, Aaron Fallaw and George McQuien manned a booth to speak to local youth on the importance of mining and career opportunities in our industry.  Four sample of Florida minerals (Quartz sand, Ilmenite, Fuller’s Earth, and Phosphate) were displayed and explained to the inquisitive.  Booklets on mining careers and the educational “Mining Rocks” were handed out.  The weather was treatening and this limited turnout, but we reached a goodly number of people.  Jama photographed the event – George explaining the “Mining Rocks” booklet. Wes and Aaron explaining phosphate. The table with the guys.  The guys posing for the camera.
