Our mission is to work with Idahoans to maintain a sustainable mining industry that emphasizes good paying jobs, economic development, and environmental stewardship that comes from mining.
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.
Mining is also important for the economic health and vitality of America. Idaho mines produce materials used in a dizzying number of products, things we use every day. A strong industry is critical for keeping those products available and our economy moving.
