Presentation: Arizona’s First Mining Engineer and Assayer: Guido Kustel, A Talk by Paul Franklin
Guido Kustel was an assayer, metallurgist and one of the most important mining engineers in the West during the California Gold Rush, silver mining days of the Arizona Territory, and during the Comstock silver boom in Nevada. He was a prolific author, writing books and articles on mining, which became the standard reference for mining and mill men of the day. Come hear about his adventures (including a narrow escape from Apaches) and the fascinating life of this amazing Tubac resident of the 1850’s. $7.50 fee includes admission to tour the Park.
