OUR FAMILY

Has been in the mining business since the 1930's when Larry's dad used to hang from the cliffs at the McKinney Mine to drill holes for dynamite and since 1966 when my deceased husband was hired by Bill Collins as a consultant at the Crabtree Emerald Mine, collapsed and flooded since 1990, but once owned by Tiffany & Co.
