Minerals, Mining Artifacts, and Physical Assets of the former Arizona Mining and Mineral Museum
Author:  Carter, C.S. Conway, F.M.
Description:  On 6 Aug. 2016, Arizona Senate Bill (SB) 1530 transferred custodianship of the Polly Rosenbaum Building, Phoenix, Arizona, and the mineral and mining artifacts collection of the former Arizona Mining and Mineral Museum (AMMM) to the Arizona Geological Survey (AZGS), at the University of Arizona. The nearly 30,000 square foot Polly Rosenbaum Building is situated on the Government Mall in downtown Phoenix and was once home to the Arizona Mining and Mineral Museum (AMMM). The former AMMM collection comprised more than 21,000 minerals and 1,400 mining artifacts. The purpose of this report is to document the history, nature and scope of the AMMM mineral and mining artifacts collection. Throughout the remainder of this paper, and in all subsequent tables, the former AMMM collection will be referred to as the MMNRE collection, congruent with the transfer of the collection to MMNRE Museum. In addition, this report will describe and clarify the collection nomenclature used by the current collections software, PastPerfect version 5.0. This report should substantially improve AZGS efforts to curate and manage the collection in the future.
