Alabama Coal Association rebrands as Alabama Mining Association

By |  February 11, 2021

Alabama Mining Association AMAThe Alabama Coal Association rebranded as the Alabama Mining Association (AMA), representing a wider range of aggregate and infrastructure-related businesses in the state.

AMA says its mission is to promote the safe and sustainable mining of the natural resources that strengthen Alabama’s infrastructure and grow its economy.

“Whether you mine the stone, sand and gravel that strengthens our infrastructure, met coal exported to steelmakers around the world or the thermal coal that powers local industry, AMA is the partner that keeps you producing,” says Patrick Cagle, president of the Alabama Mining Association.

AMA says it is the first state association to establish a sustainable mining program, with a focus on sustainability efforts that help its members “set constructive goals and achieve outcomes that are meaningful to the citizens of Alabama.”

The association, which was established in 1972, will hold its inaugural Safety and Sustainability awards dinner this fall. AMA members will submit sustainability projects to be evaluated by a panel of judges comprised of conservation organization leaders, regulatory agency leaders and wildlife officials.

“As the collective voice of Alabama’s mining industry, AMA is the advocate dedicated to ensuring that decision-makers at the local, state and federal level understand how our industry supports the economy in their communities and improve the quality of life of their constituents,” Cagle says.
