Our mission at the Idaho Mining Association (IMA) is to serve as the voice of our members as we promote the long-term health of our industry.
This year, we would like to pay particular attention to the new administration and to help promote modern mining, which is safe and responsible.
Good environmental stewardship is both an ethical responsibility and a prerequisite for the long-term success of the mining industry.
Idaho mining is responsible for high-paying jobs in communities where those jobs are needed most. Our people help provide the raw materials to power, build and feed America. And we do it in a way that is sustainable and responsible for Idaho.
We are fortunate in Idaho to have a diverse mineral base. Our geology is one of this state’s most important assets, and a health mining industry helps utilize that asset over the long term.
