Posted on June 01, 2012 by Minerals Make Life

The National Mining Association has been selected by the National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum (NMHF&M) to receive the 2012 Gary Prazen Living Legend of Mining Award. The Prazen Award is given each year to an individual or organization that has demonstrated a continuing commitment to educate the public on the vital importance of mining—through efforts such as NMA’s Minerals Make Life initiative.

“It is through the excellent work of organizations such as NMA that the industry can continue to increase public awareness, perception and understanding of the impact that mining has on everyday life,” said NMHF&M Executive Director Bob Hartzell.
