Sterling Mill Mining Museum

This weekend we visited a mine in New Jersey with out Boy Scout troop.  We  were able to complete two merit badges: Mining in Society and Geology.  It was well worth the visit.

I loved this periodic table with samples of the actual element, a representative sample of ore from which that element is obtained, plus an item made from that element.
