Become an Education Patron!
UMA’s public education programs will be a success only with the participation and support of our members. A robust education fund is required to fully execute our strategic plan, so we have initiated an Education Patron program through which you can donate money to go straight to our public education initiatives.

The Voice of the Utah Mining Industry Since 1915
Founded in 1915, the Utah Mining Association (UMA) is proud to represent a foundational industry that is integral to everyone’s lifestyle and standard of living. As the beginning of the supply chain for everything we use and everything we do as a society, the mining industry has a great story to tell, and UMA exists to tell that story.
Advocacy: We advocate for and advance the mineral resource and related industries in Utah. We represent and inform our members in the legislative and regulatory arenas at the local, state and federal levels.
Public Education: We educate elected officials, regulators and the public on the importance of, and the policies necessary for, a strong Utah mining industry. Our public education efforts are successfully building greater understanding and public support for Utah’s mining and service-related industries.
Networking & Business Development: Learn from one another and build your business through informative and fun networking opportunities such as our Annual Convention, Exhibition & Golf Tournament, Annual Mining & Manufacturing Safety Conference, and Education Fundraiser Golf Tournament.
Standing Committees: The Association’s work on issues of concern to the membership is conducted through a number of standing committees, chaired by members who work closely with UMA’s professional staff.
