"The tag line on the UMA logo reminds us the association has been "At the Center of Utah Industry" since 1915. That much is certainly true, but it's also important to remember that mining is not just at the center of Utah industry; the mining industry is integral to every Utahns' lifestyle and standard of living. As the beginning of the supply chain for everything we use and everything we do, the mining industry has a great story to tell, and I'm eager to bring that story to Utah policymakers, students and citizens.

"The Mining Focus magazine and our educational website Mining Rocks! helps tell our story."

- Mark Compton

UMA President
