Welcome . . .

Mining supports the very foundation of our economy. From the stone and gravel used to build roads and lay foundations for homes and buildings, to coal and uranium used to generate more than half of the nation's electricity, to the copper wire that connects billions of computers to a global social and commercial network, our economy and way of life depend on the vital resources provided by mining.

The Utah Mining Association (UMA), established in 1915, helps to promote and protect the mining industry. UMA provides its members with full-time professional industry representation before the State Legislature; various government regulatory agencies on the federal, state and local levels; other associations, and business and industry groups.

Education in mining and minerals is encouraged to further the understanding of the role this critical industry and its products play in people's lives, and to foster a spirit of community cooperation.

Mining is Integral to the Quality of your Life!

Mining Ambassador Program

The Utah Mining Association (UMA) is developing an ambitious, comprehensive education campaign that expands and enhances mining education in Utah to further the public’s understanding of the critical role the mining industry plays in everyone’s lives.

UMA’s Mining Ambassador program is in the first phase of this comprehensive education campaign, and is focused on providing Utah 4th graders a positive education on mining as a supplement to their earth science curriculum.

The program successfully launched in August 2012, and UMA mining ambassadors are now visiting 4th grade classrooms to present information about minerals and metals and help make the connection between mining and students’ daily lives.


The Mining Ambassador, a representative from a Utah mining company, will present an hour presentation on mining. Their message focuses on needs of mined materials in today's society, safety, operations, reclamation, and jobs. In our inaugural year, we received overwhelmingly positive feedback, and we are excited to expand this program. This program is free. We try our best to accommodate all requests for presentations. To request a presentation at your school email us at education@utahmining.org

UMA Members:

The Mining Ambassador program will be a success only with the participation and support of UMA members. The commitment needed from the UMA membership includes individual commitment of members’ time and talent, funding commitment (both financial and “in kind”) and sponsorship commitment associated with various aspects of the education programs as they are developed.

It’s time for the mining industry to step up, tell our story, and provide the facts. The pledge form below indicates various ways you and your company can help make UMA’s education efforts successful. Please contact Marilyn Tuttle at 801-364-1874 or mining@utahmining.org to let us know how you can help!
