AEMA is an effective and proactive advocate for the North American mining community, successfully influencing the outcome of political dialogue, building effective working strategies with key elected officials, developing and coordinating industry’s response to legislative and regulatory issues, and galvanizing the grassroots.

The American Exploration & Mining Association’s Annual Meeting and Exposition, held the first week of December, is the second largest annual mining convention in the U.S. Our convention consists of short courses, technical sessions, and a 250 booth trade exposition.


AEMA can only support and advocate meaningfully for our industry with your support, advice and membership.

AEMA members are a true cross-section of the mining community, from small miners and exploration geologists to junior and large mining companies, manufacturers and suppliers. Together we can tackle issues that affect all of us.

We invite you to join AEMA today and claim your seat at the table and help drive important action for our industry. As an AEMA member, you will join a distinguished list of global mining industry leaders who work together to achieve meaningful policy reform that touches all of our lives.
