Mineralogy & Mining Education

The Sterling Hill Mining Museum is dedicated to educating teachers and their students about natural resource issues, with particular reference to the State of New Jersey.

Our education programs explore such topics as the geology and mineralogy of New Jersey, our nonrenewable resources (metals, nonmetals, and fuels), how those resources have been extracted and used over time, and, in a global sense, how our present lives are shaped by the materials available to us. We work within the broad fields of the STEM core subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), which we often explore not only in their current but also historical contexts.

All of our educational offerings are aligned with New Jersey core curriculum standards and are designed to be implemented by teachers within the context of their existing school curriculum.

Education: College-Level Instruction

Sterling Hill has long been a destination of choice for universities interested in introducing their students to concepts of geology, ore deposit formation, mineralogy, and industrial process technology through field trips. For decades that function was filled by the New Jersey Zinc Company, operators of the Sterling Hill mine until its closure in 1986.

We continue that tradition by offering the following, either singly or in any desired combination:

  • Underground and surface field instruction at Sterling Hill
  • Lectures and seminars
  • Mineral collecting opportunities, including nighttime collecting for fluorescent minerals
  • Off-site field trips to other localities nearby

In addition, our three Ph.D. geologists can offer local expertise on a variety of research topics, including technical support of thesis research at the baccalaureate and advanced degree levels. We regularly cooperate with university professors and their students on aspects of the local mineralogy and geology, and are eager to see more studies done in the area to continue the flow of knowledge. More remains to be learned than is known thus far.

College groups interested in field trips to Sterling Hill are encouraged to contact Dr. Earl Verbeek at shmm@ptd.net, or by phone at 973-209-7212, to discuss their plans and obtain a price quote. Prices depend on the combination of services desired and the length of time required, but as a rough guide, count on $20 per student for an all-day tour, plus $5 admission fee and $1.50/lb if mineral collecting at Sterling Hill is to be added. Off-site field trips will be slightly more expensive, as will lectures and seminars due to preparation time. Research support is generally offered gratis as long as the results are intended for publication.

Campgrounds are available nearby for groups wishing to spend more than one day in the area, and the town of Franklin, only 2.5 miles distant, offers a full complement of fast-food restaurants for inexpensive dinner fare.
