December 6, 2016 is is #NationalMinersDay!
Did you know that the U.S. has over 350,000 miners working in almost 14,000 mines? Our nation’s miners extract nearly 100 types of minerals from the ground, which are used to heat our homes, carry electricity, build bridges, keep highways clear in winter, and provide the raw materials for hundreds of products – from computers to cosmetics to cooking utensils.
Join us today in thanking our nation’s miners for their extraordinary contributions and sacrifices!
