Chicago-based Coeur Mining CEO addresses Mining Industry at AEMA’s 122nd Annual Meeting

Mitchell J. Krebs. President & CEO of Chicago-based Coeur Mining, Inc. addressed a sold-out Industry Outlook Luncheon today at American Exploration & Mining Association’s (AEMA) 122nd Annual Meeting, Exposition & Short Courses in Reno, Nevada.

Mr. Krebs addressed several important issues facing the modern mining industry; stressing the need for educating the next generation of miners who will need to blend traditional skills with new technologies; ensuring that rates of return exceed the cost of capital; continuing mining’s outstanding safety record; and working with government agencies to ensure more predictable and efficient permitting timelines. Mr. Krebs also explained how Coeur has planned for the future through dynamic and thoughtful development of its team from the corporate office to the mine.

“It’s great to hear the positive outlook Mitch has for our industry. Mining, like all commodity industries, has never been for the faint of heart,” said Laura Skaer, AEMA Executive Director. “Coeur is a mining industry success story and has been an industry leader for over 80 years providing the minerals that make modern society possible. AEMA is proud to count Coeur Mining as a longtime member.”

The Annual Meeting is the second largest annual mining convention in the U.S., featuring 245 exhibitors, a core shack, 23 technical sessions and over 100 speakers, and will bring more than 2,000 people to the Reno area. The Annual Meeting runs through Friday, December 9th.
