European Minerals Day - This Weekend

Posted By Ariel Hill-Davis, Friday, September 22, 2017

This weekend, IMA-NA's sister organization IMA-Europe is celebrating the 10th Anniversary of European Minerals Day. European Minerals Day provides the opportunity for industrial mineral producers to open their doors to the communities they operate in.  Minerals Day is a great opportunity to educate the general public as well as elected and appointed officials about the role industrial minerals play in their daily lives. From it's start in 2007, European Minerals Day has steadily grown to include hundreds of events across 27 countries.  These events play an incredibly important role in improving awareness and understanding of the minerals, and the companies producing them, that provide the building blocks for our modern lives.
