Mining engineering students at Missouri University of Science and Technology are “haunting” the school’s Experimental Mine Facility for Halloween this year.

Student volunteers from the Missouri S&T mining engineering department will transform the mine into a “Haunted Mine” to earn funds to send student members of the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration; the Society of Women in Mining; and the International Society of Explosives Engineers to conferences. Funds will also help the National Stone, Sand, and Gravel Association; the Mine Rescue Team; and the Mucking team attend competitions throughout the year. The department’s Haunted Mine fundraiser has been held each Halloween since 1997.

Tours of the 2016 Haunted Mine will be held 6-11 p.m. Oct. 21, 22, 28, 29 and 31. From 4:30 to 6 p.m. each day, a $5 walk-through will be available for those who would prefer to experience the mine with the lights on.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for children under 10, S&T students and active duty and veteran military with valid IDs.

A $2 discount will be given to each person who brings three canned goods to donate to the Russell House, a shelter for women and children who are victims of domestic violence.

The Missouri S&T Experimental Mine is located off Bridge School Road at 12350 Spencer Road in Rolla, approximately 1.5 miles from campus.
