NWMA takes on new name; Becomes American Exploration and Mining Association
Mining Engineering, 2014, Vol. 66, No. 3, pp. 44-44
The Northwest Mining Association (NWMA) has been an advocate for the U.S. mining industry since 1895. For several decades, the organization has represented mining members located mostly in the Northwest and some southwestern Canadian provinces.
Today, though, the NWMA’s membership is located in 42 states and seven provinces, and has become a national voice for the mining industry. So, during the association’s 119th and final meeting as the NWMA, a name change was announced. The organization is now called the American Exploration and Mining Association (AEMA). But that’s not all that has changed, according to the association. The new name reflects more closely the diversity and location of the AEMA’s membership. It will still be an advocate for the mining industry, dealing with land, environmental and community issues on state and federal levels.
