Honoring women in mining always creates a dichotomy for me. You see, I don’t think of myself as a woman in mining, nor do many of the women I know in the industry. Rather, we think of ourselves as MINERS... period. However, as a woman who chooses mining as a career, I profoundly admire the women who came before me, especially during the early years in mining, and I share my gratitude for a culture which provides opportunity for hard-working, talented and determined women.
TMRA is very proud to bring you a glimpse at some of the many women who make the mining industry great. For decades, women have served in different roles, each as varied as the women themselves. We celebrate these women every day and hope you enjoy reading a few of their stories below in this special "Women In Mining" focus.
