    Nevada Mining Association announces 2019 Safety Awards recipients

    Recipients showcase an industry-wide commitment to safe mining operations (Reno, Nev.) June 17, 2019–The Nevada Mining Association (NvMA) is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2019 Individual Safety Awards. The awards celebrate the men and women who make an extraordinary effort to ensure all mine workers return home safely after every shift. Awards will be presented during the NvMA’s 41st annual convention in September. “Safety is the number one priority for the Nevada mining industry,” said Dana Bennett, NvMA president. “These awards reflect that commitment and demonstrate the dedication of all Nevada miners to ensuring that their colleagues return home safe and healthy every day. Congratulations to these distinguished award winners who work hard to make mining one of the safest industries in Nevada.” The NvMA Safety Awards are based on performance in the previous calendar year, and the winners are chosen by their peers. At NvMA’s annual convention, 52 individual miners will be recognized for their dedication to best practices in safety standards and for their impressive accomplishments throughout 2018. In addition to the individual awards, the NvMA will also recognize mining companies for their commitment to providing safe workplaces. Those recipients are based on data provided by the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) and will be announced in July. Attached is the list of NvMA Safety Awards winners and the mines at which they worked in 2018.   About the Nevada Mining Association The Nevada Mining Association is comprised of operating mining companies; exploration companies; suppliers of industry equipment, goods, and services; and individuals interested in sustaining the industry.  The Nevada Mining Association champions a business environment that fosters mineral exploration, development, and production in Nevada using safe and environmentally conscious methods.  For more information, visit www.nevadamining.org.
