The Happy Jack Chalk Mine is one of the most unusual and interesting sites of geological interest on the Great Plains.
It is one of only two underground diatomic mines known to have existed in the United States, and the only one that is open to the public.
OUR MISSION: is to develop the Happy Jack Peak and Chalk Mine site into an educational, historical, recreational and scenic area for local residents and tourism in the distinctive North Loup River Valley area. Through this mission, the Happy Jack Chalk Mine Associations extends itself to identifying education, historic, economic, environmental, social and recreational concerns and opportunities for developing and implementing strategies to better the quality of life for residents and those who visit the Central Nebraska area.
