BENEFITING: Friends of CAIC
The Colorado Mining Assocation has donated $25,000 to support avalanche forecasting and education throughout the State of Colorado. We challenge you to match us!
As you know, the Colorado snowpack can be incredibly dangerous and unfortunately accounts for one third of all avalanche fatalities in North America. With eleven deaths last season, the 2012/2013 season was tied as the second deadliest season in Colorado since 1950.
We have a great avalanche center here in Colorado but together we can help make it better. We want and deserve the best avalanche center in the world. Help us fund that center!
Colorado Mining Association
The Colorado Mining Association (CMA), established in 1876 and incorporated in 1897, is a trade association whose membership, numbering 180 companies and 800 individuals, is composed of both small and large enterprises engaged in the exploration for, production and refining of, metals, coal, oil shale, and industrial minerals; firms that manufacture and distribute mining and mineral processing equipment and supplies; and other institutions providing services and supplies to the mineral industry.
The CMA, headquartered in Denver, serves as a spokesman for the mining industry in Colorado. The Association works in cooperation with other state and national mining associations, keeping the industry informed on pending state and federal legislation and promulgating constructive programs and actions that will adequately recognize and serve mining's special problems and needs. It serves the industry on a wide range of subjects through the expertise of its members and member companies on standing, ad hoc, and select committees.
