- NMA Recognizes National Miners Day
December 4, 2014
In advance of National Miners Day on Dec. 6, National Mining Association (NMA) President and CEO Hal Quinn released the following statement:
“The National Mining Association is proud to recognize America’s miners and their indispensable role in powering and building our nation. While one day each year is set aside to honor these highly skilled and dedicated professionals, every American can thank them every day for providing the energy, metals, minerals and materials essential for our way of life.
“Our miners take great pride in what they do, and rightfully so. They are the front-end of the supply chain for what every sector of our economy needs to succeed. Our nation depends upon them getting it done and getting it done right—safely, reliably and efficiently.
\“On behalf of all the members of the National Mining Association, I would like to express our gratitude to all miners and their families for all that they do in the service of their country and their fellow miners.”
