Quarterly Meeting  (Event)

Please consider joining us for our July Quarterly Meeting. Economic geologist and historical society member, Dr. Russell Myers will present his program on the early history of iron mining at Pilot Knob.  Myers has travelled the world in pursuit of geology.  He’s worked in South Africa where he earned his PhD in Geology, taught at the James Cook University in Australia, and has been a prospector in East Africa, South America, Alaska and Nevada.  He has now returned to southeast Missouri where he grew up and now makes his home.
Since returning, Myers has done extensive research on the early mining on Pilot Knob Mountain.  He has also used advances in modern technology such as LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) as well as topographical maps to advance our knowledge of early mining activities on the mountain.  Myers has combined historical photographs, maps, and LiDAR topography in his past presentations on this this subject and will now share that presentation with us.   As always, the public is encouraged to attend.
