Dear David,

As you celebrate and spend time with loved ones, take a moment to consider the importance of minerals to all aspects of the holidays. Whether traveling to visit family and friends far away, cooking a holiday meal or exchanging presents at home, minerals make it all possible. The infographic linked below highlights 19 minerals vital to the holiday season including iron, copper, gold, silver, molybdenum and zinc.

Learn more about how minerals make the holiday season by visiting our Minerals Make Life blog

Best regards,

Playing for the Future


During this season of giving, I want to highlight our commitment to being a good neighbor to the communities in which we operate. National Mining Association members have reclaimed hundreds of thousands of acres of land to be used by community members, and our Playing for the Future video depicts just how important reclamation is to the mining industry.
