The Kirwin Collection, Royal Ontario Museum
This display was built from hundreds of deposits and localities around the world, and is truly a geological library.
The Kirwin Collection was built to create a resource that would be of value in teaching both the fundamentals and the finer points of the geological processes that form the mineral deposits on which we depend.
The acquisition of the Kirwin Collection was made possible by the generous support of BMO Financial Group, Yamana Gold Inc., Douglas Kirwin, Louise Hawley Stone Charitable Trust, Hatch, Rock of Ages Gala 2011, The Bogden Family, Scott and Ellen Hand, Francine and Robert Ruggles, Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada, Christopher Wansbrough, AMC Consultants, Women in Mining Toronto.
