“Pershing Gold recently increased our corporate dues to the American Exploration & Mining Association because we believe AEMA is doing critically important work for mineral exploration and mining. In fact, AEMA is the only association in the country with a strong focus on preserving access to public lands for mineral exploration and development. AEMA is actively and effectively involved in all of the key public lands and environmental issues affecting our industry, and has built a stellar reputation on Capitol Hill as the “go-to-organization” for accurate and timely information on hard rock mineral issues. I strongly urge my colleagues to follow Pershing Gold’s lead and increase your support of AEMA.”
