December 6 is National Miners Day, a day designated by Congress to honor the contributions and sacrifices of miners both past and present.
Mining has a long and proud tradition in the United States which continues to this day. About 366,000 miners today extract nearly 100 different kinds of minerals from the earth, including coal, gold, copper, silver, granite, limestone, granite, salt, gravel, and many more. They work in every one of the fifty states, and provide the raw materials for heat, electricity, roads and bridges, and countless consumer products, from electronics to cosmetics. Even toothpaste is composed of minerals obtained by miners.
On National Miners Day, MSHA salutes the men and women who have chosen the occupation of mining, and we rededicate ourselves to doing all that we can to protect their safety and health. We encourage others to join us in honoring miners on this day, by using any of the following materials in your own outreach. (msha)
