“Participation of Rio Tinto employees in UMA’s public education programs has served as an outstanding professional development opportunity, while providing them an opportunity to reach out to and teach students more about their careers and mining in Utah.”

– Josh Brown, Director of Government Affairs, Rio Tinto Kennecott


“UMA has been invaluable in helping us quickly and accurately stay up-to-date about state and federal legislative and regulatory issues that could affect development of our project here in Utah. We have a seat at the table on these issues, and are part of a broad and effective industry coalition, thanks to UMA. What’s more, UMA’s help with public outreach during the EIS process for our utility corridor allowed us to be far more successful than we would have been alone.”

– Rikki Hrenko-Browning, Chief Executive Officer, Enefit American Oil


“Our biggest advantage from UMA has been participating in their committees. It has brought us more business and opportunities to work with others in the industry on issues of common concern such as education of the general public on the importance of mining, and improving the mining environment in Utah.”

– Alister Horn, Principal, Millcreek Mining Group
