TX Mining Monthly
October 2023


TMRA’s Annual Meeting at the Grand Galvez in Galveston this week was a wonderful time for members to connect with old friends and make new ones. During Tuesday’s General Session, members enjoyed key insights on the state of TMRA industries, including a legislative panel discussion with Ty Embrey, Lloyd Gosselink; Mance Zachary, Vistra; and Mike Nasi, Jackson Walker. Nasi also gave the keynote. Click the button below to view more photos from the event.


TMRA is proud to congratulate our Legislators of the Year, Rep. Ryan Guillen (District 31) and Rep. Keith Bell (District 4), for their support of the Texas mining industry!
