CWCS, along with our counterpart on Facebook – We Support Minnesota Mining – have been working for a period of time on developing a mining support website to assist in research, education and provide a resource base for relevant mining related material and selected opinion. We have also been working with Up North Jobs and Minnesota Miners on Facebook and Twitter in this effort for the betterment of our communities, region and state.

 

We have attempted to provide a cross section of good information to assist you in your research. It is intended to be used on the laptop or desktop platform. The new site has been titled: We Support Minnesota Mining Resource Library Link to the resource is here: http://www.frontiernet.net/~babbittcs/WSMMRL/index.html
