Mining & Manufacturing: Harry Moser, Reshoring Initiative
As the U.S. manufacturing sector continues to grow, the importance of a secure, stable and reliable raw material supply is increasing. However, Harry Moser, founder of the Reshoring Initiative, explains that the current permitting process for new minerals and metals mines in the U.S. makes it harder for U.S. manufacturers to obtain the raw materials they need when they need them. It’s essential we solve the mineral permitting problem while we work to bring jobs home.

Sweeping Federal Land Withdrawals:  A Threat to U.S. Minerals Security
The Department of Interior is proposing to remove 10 million acres of federal lands based on a recommendation to protect the sage grouse’s habitat—a bird species that is not endangered. By removing mineral rich lands from future mining operations, this unnecessary action will hurt the U.S. economy and its industries. To learn more about the federal lands issue and how this over-reaching decision will impact the nation’s minerals security, view our fact sheet here: http://mineralsmakelife.org/resources/details/dept.-of-the-interiors-sweeping-land-withdrawals-threaten-u.s.-minerals-sec

Permitting Delays: Hindering America's Economic Growth
Because of a broken government regulatory process American companies are forced to import more than half the minerals they use need from foreign countries. Seven to 10 year delays from a slow and redundant permitting process are the largest risk to domestic mining projects and the reason why investors are not investing in U.S. minerals mining. By eliminating needless duplication and bureaucracy, we can reduce the permitting timeframes for infrastructure projects while continuing to uphold stringent environmental safeguards. These changes are crucial to ensuring a stable supply of domestic minerals, creating jobs, supporting our economy and keeping America strong. Learn more at www.mineralsmakelife.org

CORESafety: Introduction to Module 4 – Fatality Prevention/Risk Management
To fully understand the importance of this module, we need to be clear about the differences between “hazards” and “risks”. A hazard is a source of potential damage, harm or adverse effect, including ill health and injury. A risk is the probability and severity of the damage, harm or adverse effect occurring. Risk management is the process of identifying safety and health hazards, evaluating associated risk and consequences, and developing controls to eliminate or minimize negative outcomes.

Are We Gambling with the Future of the Electric Grid?
As we continue to lose more coal power plants, our power system becomes more expensive and less reliable. The power plants currently at-risk of closing prematurely keep the lights on and power prices lower. Keeping our most reliable power plants running just makes sense. Learn more at countoncoal.org.

U.S. Mining Policy & Global Competitiveness: Mark Fellows, SNL Metals & Mining
Demand for the minerals needed to supply the defense, advanced energy, high-tech electronics, medical and transportation industries is rising globally, particularly in the U.S. However, Mark Fellows, director of consulting at SNL Metals & Mining, explains that of all the developed nations, the U.S. is afflicted most severely by protracted delays in obtaining mining permits, impairing and discouraging investments in mineral development projects. These delays cause manufacturers to become overly reliant on minerals imports, despite a wealth of resources in the U.S. Lawmakers must implement policies that guarantee manufacturers access to the raw materials needed to succeed.
