Transfer of the Colorado Geological Survey to the Colorado School of Mines

Last week, the Colorado School of Mines Board of Trustees approved the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to transfer the Colorado Geological Survey from the Colorado Dept. of Natural Resources to CSM.  Assuming that the Legislature approves the MOU, the transfer will administratively take effect February 1, 2013.  The physical move will not occur until classes are out in late Spring.

State Geologist Vince Matthews [top] is retiring December 31, 2012, after 8 years as Survey director. Karen Berry [bottom],  who has served as Acting Deputy Director for the past year and a half, was appointed Acting State Geologist and Director of CGS from January 1 through April, 2013.
