COVID-19 has hit New Mexico’s economy hard. To rebuild, we will need to rely on the resources and industries that are our state’s backbone. This includes the mining industry. We lead the way in mining minerals like copper, molybdenum, perlite and potash. Molybdenum and perlite will be used in construction, building and infrastructure projects. Potash will be used to help grow important crops that feed New Mexicans. And our state’s renewable energy infrastructure is reliant on our copper resources. Additionally, New Mexico’s mining industry create high paying jobs that drive local economies.
Mining will help build the New Mexico of the future. That’s why it’s important to support natural resource champions today who are committed to helping our mining industry thrive and communities prosper.
