The Wyoming Mining Association (WMA) has been selected as the 2013 Research/ Outreach Partner of the Year by several departments within the college. The association has worked directly with the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics and others for many years on annual publications, major projects, and reclamation technology.
"Consistent goals have created long-lasting partnerships between the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources and the WMA membership," notes Roger Coupal, department head of agricultural and applied economics.
In its mission statement, the WMA identifies goals such as "building a healthy environment that co-exists with a healthy mining industry" and promotion of "consistent, rational and prudent rules and regulations." John Tanaka, head of the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management, also expressed pleasure at the nomination. "The Department of Ecosystem Science and Management is very pleased to be part of the recognition of the Wyoming Mining Association for continued support and collaboration with faculty and students," Tanaka says.
