Board of Trustees

AEMA's Board of Trustees are at the top of their fields and represent a true cross section of the entire hard-rock mining industry, from exploration geologists and lawyers to suppliers, junior mining companies and large corporations.  AEMA is immensely grateful to the individuals, past and present who choose to serve on AEMA's volunteer Board and for their passion and expertise.
