As the old adage says, "Stuff happens." What training do you and your staff have to stay ahead of the unexpected? All of our staff have been with us for years and are highly experienced in handling any unforeseen situations. Experience is the best teacher, but our management team is always available for backup support. What’s your favorite part of your job? This is not a job, it's a passion. Preserving and sharing mining history is important in our mineral-rich area. Particularly enjoyable is the chance to conduct guided mine tours for many school and church groups.

  • Mimosa Hills Golf and Country Club
    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Mimosa Hills Golf and Country Club facet_type_id: 0579a230-5f2c-1032-bbcb-46fa06425bbc html_text: 'Like green spokes, the fairways of Mimosa Hills Golf and Country Club spread radially from a gleaming white clubhouse—the course''s stately and welcoming hub. The layout is the work of the famous Donald Ross, one of the few course architects to achieve something approaching household-name status. His magnum opus, Pinehurst No. 2, had already been around for a good 30 years before he started in on Mimosa Hills in 1929. The architect was drawn to the site''s natural layout as well as the Blue Ridge Mountains skyline that rises up dramatically above the treetops. Much like Pinehurst, the course has survived the test of time: the North Carolina Golf Panel—an association of industry professionals and critics—placed the course 69th on its 2009 list of the top 100 courses in the state.'
