Global Mining Guidelines Group (GMG) and the Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration (SME) are pleased to announce a strategic partnership between their two organisations. A partnership between SME and GMG will drive increased openness in the mining industry.

The SME-GMG partnership will enable SME members to maintain a leadership position in the global mining community. GMG has similar agreements with other mining organisations as a key strategy to building and strengthening the global mining innovation network.

“The future of mining requires greater collaboration, increased openness and sharing across the industry, and a willingness to embrace new technologies and practices – that is the premise of GMG,” says GMG Executive Director Heather Ednie. “And, we need leadership level participation from the US mining community to be successful – and SME represents that community.”

As part of this collaboration, SME will become the official partner on all GMG events held in the United States as of 2020.

“The United States is one of the leading mining nations in the world, home to many large mining companies as well as key mining suppliers, both traditional and non-traditional,” said SME Executive Director David L. Kanagy. “This partnership will enable SME members to participate in global innovation collaboration and ensure that the US has input into international guidelines development.”
