The mining industry provides the necessary mineral resources needed to build phones, manufacture cars, modernize medicine, keep our nation safe and so much more. Green energy, highway infrastructure and future manufacturing all depend on mining. If it can’t be grown it has to be mined.

The American Exploration & Mining Association, 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.
