Kelsey Boltz has been a registered mining engineer and geologist in Arizona since the mid 1960s. A 1953 graduate of the Colorado School of Mines, he founded Colamer Corporation and Nuclear Dynamics, both companies active in the uranium industry in the Grants Uranium Region of New Mexico in the '50s, '60s and '70s. In 1981 he co-founded Century Capital, Inc., an investment banking and retail brokerage firm which provided several hundred million dollars financing for various industries including natural resource companies. In 1990 he started his exploration consulting company, Boltz Group International, which initiated and managed several mining projects in Mexico, Chile and Bolivia. The collection consists of geologic...

Richard (Dick) Hahman was born in Buffalo, New York, in 1936. He grew up in coal mining towns in Pennsylvania, then later in Washington, D.C. He received his master's in geology from the University of West Virginia. His career took him through the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Chile. He worked for several companies in Tucson, Arizona, before going to work for Conoco Inc. in Oklahoma City in the early 1980s. In the late '80s he started his consulting company, Hahman & Associates, in Las Cruces, New Mexico. He moved back to Tucson around 1997. The collection contains geologic reports, drill logs, maps, assays, photos and field notes from exploration in Arizona and New Mexico.

These photographs were mostly taken from the Arizona Department of Mines and Mineral Resources (ADMMR) Mining collection, records on mineral resource exploration and mining in Arizona from late 1800s to the early 2000s. Photographs principally relate to a mineral locality reported in the Arizona Mineral Industry Location System. Photographs titled "ADMMR" document the history of the Arizona Department of Mines and Mineral Resources, making up a little over 10 percent of the collection. Items were arranged alphabetically by prints and negatives, then slides and lastly Polaroids. The hyphenated number at the end of each title refers to the old numbering system employed by our dedicated volunteers and should not be...
This inventory describes photos taken by A. L. Flagg during his travels as a mining engineer over the period 1905 to 1955 and they capture life in developing western North America. The photographs were largely identified using notes made by A.L. Flagg, research of Arizona Department of Mines and Mineral Resources' (ADMMR) mine files and mining periodicals of the time. Principle photograph locations are in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Rhode Island, and Washington along with Durango and Oaxaca, Mexico. Arthur Leonard Flagg was born June 29, 1883, the son of Charles Welford and Anna R. (Daley) Flagg. He earned his bachelor’s degree in geology at Brown University in 1906. As a young mining engineer Arthur Flagg followed...
