About these pages:
Mining depends on the interest and involvement of its employees to help identify issues that are important to the company and to register our concerns with lawmakers at all levels of government. One form of involvement is to vote.
Over the past several years, federal legislation and regulatory mandates have created uncertainty for many industries, including mining. Compliance and enforcement mandates along with increased reporting requirements create additional costs of doing business. These mandates and unnecessary regulations discourage economic growth by driving jobs to other countries.
We need informed elected officials and policy makers that are open to discussions regarding our industry. We believe electing pro-mining representatives from both parties to state and federal offices is critical to the success of our industry and company.
