2016 marks the second annual North American Minerals Day. In partnership with European Minerals Day, members of the Industrial Minerals Association – North America (IMA-NA) will be working to spread awareness and understanding of the industrial minerals industry throughout their communities during the week of October 10th.

Started in 2007 and held every two years, European Minerals Day offers the chance for communities to explore and learn about the world of minerals. Companies open the doors to their facilities allowing members of the public the opportunity to learn about the industry that provides the foundation for much of our modern lifestyle.

Building on the joint success of IMA-NA and IMA-Europe's 2015 Global Minerals Days, in 2016 we continue our global partnership to spread awareness across North America about the industrial mineral producers hard at work in our communities.
