For the fourth year in a row, S&T’s Experimental Mine topped the list of “Awesome College Labs” published by Popular Science in the magazine’s September issue.

Located on Bridge School Road in Rolla, the mine hosts the popular summer Explosives Camp for high school juniors and seniors and gives Missouri S&T students a place to get practical experience in surveying methods and practice, mine ventilation, rock mechanics measurements, geological mapping, mine equipment power systems, groundwater testing, drilling and blasting practice, and mine safety and health.
