After 62 years of Searching the World we are finally at the end of our journey.  It has given us great pleasure to have you as friends, customers and associates.  Our goal has always been to provide the best possible prices and personal service. Our hope was that MRC would live on and to that end we were fortunate to know Michael Shannon, of Shannon Family Minerals, who shares our business philosophy and values.  We are happy to announce that Michael Shannon will assume new ownership of MRC beginning on July 15, 2020.  Please allow for a short disruption of service during this transition time.

With kindest regards and thanks,

Gene & Sharon Cisneros

Michael Shannon
