. November 10, 2012

The California State Mining and Mineral Museum in Mariposa has reopend after a robbery that took place last month.

In response to the robbery, it was the goal of State Parks to make repairs to the museum gallery and structure in order to reopen the doors to the public as soon as possible. State Parks and the California State Mining and Mineral Museum Association have worked together to make necessary repairs as well as to protect the museum collection and staff.

The public will be able to view most of the museum collection; however some pieces of the collection will not be on display pending the outcome of the investigation.

Currently the investigation is still ongoing and to date there has not been any arrest made in relation to the crime.

The Mariposa Mining and Mineral Museum is a unit of California State Parks. It is located in the Sierra foothills community of Mariposa, about 70 miles from Fresno. – www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=588
