Bussen Quarries believes in educating our local students on the importance of the entire mining industry to our everyday way of life. We are honored to open our doors to stress that importance and to teach our community about the everyday demand for not only our limestone but minerals in general. We have designed a tour packet for your students to print off and bring to the tour. It is our hope that this tour packet will help to keep the students engaged, promote interaction and most imprtantly....have more fun!
As a teacher, Bussen Quarries realizes you want to give your students as much information about mining and geology as possible before you enter Jefferson Barracks Quarry. We hope you find the educational documents below to be helpful.
