The Women's Mining Coalition (WMC) kicked off their Annual Washington, DC Fly-In on Monday, April 13th. Ariel Hill-Davis participated throughout the week in visits to various Congressional offices, as a representative for the Industrial Minerals mining community. Over the course of the week, theWMC visited over 270 offices to meet with members of Congress and their aides on issues of importance to the mining community. This year's top issues for WMC mirrored most of the topics IMA-NA is continuing to work on for our members. Sage Grouse, Waters of the US (WOTUS), the American Minerals Security Act, and the impact of many of the new regulations and standards on the industrial sector; were the main topics of focus during the meetings. The group asked members to consider supporting various pieces of legislation as well as continuing to educate themselves on the current state of the mining industry across the country.
