Ship GEO Mine Study
12/3/2019 by Brady Fisher - The Geography and Earth Science department here at Shippensburg took students to survey an active mine. The mine, under the operation of U.S. Silica , is located in Mapleton, Pennsylvania, which is just North of the state capital of Harrisburg and is over 100 hundred years old. Dr. Cornell, who is a professor in the Geography and Earth Science department, is in charge of leading the project. The students and Dr. Cornell want to create better decision making with the U.S. Silica Mine so they studied the geophysics and properties of the rock.
