Hal Quinn: Let mining boost state manufacturing

Posted on August 12, 2013 by Minerals Make Life

This weekend, National Mining Association President and CEO Hal Quinn was featured in the Duluth News Tribune touting the economic potential of minerals mining in Minnesota.

“The economy is a top concern for state manufacturers who question whether Minnesota is a competitive state in which to do business, according to findings from Enterprise Minnesota’s fifth-annual 'State of Manufacturing' report released in July.

Minnesota’s vast mineral wealth could provide manufacturers with ready reliable access to the raw materials upon which they rely — through sound reform of the federal mine-permitting process,” said Quinn.

To realize the potential Minnesota’s minerals offer and bolster American industry, our leaders in Washington must revisit the antiquated mining permitting process and encourage domestic minerals production.
