Equipment Needed!

Much of the Sid and Betty Williams Laboratory for Mineralogical Research has been transferred to the not-for-profit foundation at the Sterling Hill Mining Museum. In conjunction with the not-for-profit Franklin Mineral Museum, a joint effort between the two museums will now have excellent mineral identification capability as a result of the Hudson Institute's grant.

Other equipment donations have gone to the University of Arizona, the Center for Investigation of Native and Ancient Quarries and others.

We will continue to consider donations of working analytical equipment, thin sections, polished sections, microscopes or other useful tools for our educational programs, in addition to labeled mineral specimens from any locality.

The Institute received Internal Revenue Service approval for tax exempt status as specified under section 501( c)(3) of the IRS Code in 2004. As such, donations to the Institute, whether in cash or materials, are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
