The 2013 Miners’ Celebration Conference on October 3, 2013 at the Tamarack (www.tamarackwv.com) in Beckley, WV is being presented by Center for Environmental, Geotechnical and Applied Sciences (CEGAS) at Marshall University; the National Coal Heritage Area; the United Mine Workers of America; the West Virginia Coal Association; Strategic Solutions LLC; and the West Virginia Division of Energy, Office of Coalfield Community Development. Previous Miners Celebration Conferences were held in 2009, 2010 and 2012.
The past, present and future of the mining industry depends upon thousands of individuals in key roles who contribute significantly to each ton of coal produced. We refer to this as its “enterprise ecosystem”. It is because of them AND YOU that the mining industry is the success it is today. Join us in celebrating the contributions that are being made, have been made and will be made to West Virginia’s mining enterprise ecosystem.
