Developing and maintaining healthy relationships with local communities has long been part of the mining landscape in Arizona. Dating back to mining’s earlier days, mining companies quickly recognized the importance of strong community infrastructure and relationships.
The AMA realizes a community is much more than a physical location. It’s made up of people who care about jobs, the economy, the environment and their community’s own sustainability over the long term.
The AMA believes these are important also. This is why we strive to promote sound and reasonable public policy that supports the sustainability of a safe and responsible mining industry, which continues to support jobs and provide economic benefits to the state and its communities.
