TX Mining Monthly
July 2020
"Women in Mining" is our focus this month and, for sure, past due! For me and from my personal experience, Women in Mining is just "Mining." What I mean is that my whole professional experience in our industry has been, thankfully, surrounded by great women that have worked with me, trained me, guided me and just been great partners that worked to my benefit and to the benefit of the Mining Companies for which I and they have worked. That partnership is no less important now that my focus is on TMRA’s Goals and Objectives. The key is that they are "Miners."
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.
