For the 15th consecutive year, mining engineering students at Missouri University of Science and Technology will transform S&T’s Experimental Mine into an underground creep fest. The fundraiser for mining engineering activities and student organizations has been held every Halloween since 1997.
Mining engineering student volunteers work at the Haunted Mine to earn funds for the organization of their choice, including the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration; Women in Mining; the International Society for Explosives Engineers; and the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association; as well as for S&T’s mine rescue and mucking teams.
The 2012 Haunted Mine will be open from 6-11:30 p.m. Oct. 19, 20, 26 and 27. It will also be open from 5-10 p.m. on Halloween, Oct. 31.
Regular tickets are $10 for age 11 and up, and $8 for children under 10, S&T students (with valid ID) and active military (with valid ID).
Small children may visit from 5-6 p.m. Oct. 19, 20, 26 and 27 to walk through the mine with the lights on. The cost for these “kids nights” is $5 per child.
A $2 discount will be given to each person who brings three canned goods to be donated to the Russell House, a shelter for women and children who are victims of domestic violence.
The Missouri S&T Experimental Mine is located on Bridge School Road in Rolla, about 1.5 miles from campus.
