Developing Resources Responsibly

Natural resources are at the heart of mining, therefore good environmental stewardship is an industry imperative and a core requirement. Mining and its employees are at the center of our communities, underscoring our commitment to being good neighbors wherever we operate.

Twenty first century mining projects begin with extensive environmental and engineering studies, public involvement in major decision-making, and compliance with scores of state and federal laws and regulations governing every facet of the environment, from wildlife habitat protection to water quality monitoring.

Projects end with land reclamation that often includes making reclaimed mining sites useful to the community for developed recreation, wildlife enhancement and other local community needs.

Today’s mining is committed to continuing the extraordinary environmental progress that we have made in recent decades, with technological advancements that minimize mining’s impact on the environment.

U.S. mining is dedicated to upholding U.S. environmental standards while providing the critical resources that fuel the economy, foster innovation, build infrastructure, promote job creation and secure the nation’s energy future.
