April 25 is the date of our first scheduled Mining Tour of the 2012 season. KUMR will be hosting the Kootenay Region Municipal Senior Staff on that day if all goes well and we can remove all of the snow that covers our track.

Volunteer Dan Jarrett and Kimo seem to be fighting a loosing battle with the white stuff, but the backhoe is working well, thanks to our terrific shop volunteers, and they have made a really good start. Hopefully the weather will start to cooperate a bit, and all will be ready for our first mining tour.

Weekend Tours will begin on May 19th with the following schedule:
11:00 a.m. Mining Tour/Resort Tour,
1:00 p.m. Mining Tour,
3:00 p.m. Mining Tour
10:00 a.m. Sunday morning Express Tour.
