Geology and Mining Law shaped the settling of the Western United States, but how? From fault lines to outcrops, from mineral rights to mining law, mining has always been driven by the passion for discovery and money. Join Historian Troy Lambert to find out how geology and mining law shaped the way the West was won, and who won it. The lecture is part of a full afternoon celebrating Idaho Archaeology and Historic Preservation Month, 12-4:30 p.m. The afternoon includes activity stations and gold panning.
