2017 SME Tour of Caterpillar's Tinaja Hills Facility

The Young Miners are excited to announce our next event will be a tour of the Caterpillar Tinaja Hills facility just south of Tucson.  This is Caterpillars 6,500 acre facility where they conduct everything from trainings, demonstrations and testing of their newest equipment.  This is a world class facility and they have been gracious enough to host this tour for the Young Miners of SME Arizona on Saturday, April 8th

We have rented a bus for this tour and we are currently working out a pickup location in Tucson where those that want to ride the bus from Tucson can do so.  Of course, you can always meet us at their facility.  While Caterpillar has volunteered their time, we are charging $20/person $15/students to cover the costs associated with the bus.

For more information please contact the SME Young Miners of Arizona (Neil Woodroffe)

Registration Deadline is 12PM on Friday, April 7th:
  • Must register online.
  • Event is open to Everyone!
  • Please register ASAP as we are limited to the first 35 people!
