WYO-BEN WINS IMCC RECLAMATION AWARD
WMA - Bentonite producer Wyo-Ben is the 2016 winner of the Interstate Mining Compact Commission (IMCC), the Kenes C. Bowling National Mine Reclamation Award in the non-coal category. Named after the late charter executive director of IMCC, the awards were established to recognize outstanding achievements in reclamation and to promote reclamation on a national level. Each year there are two awards presented: one for coal and another for non-coal minerals. The IMCC Awards Program is intended to identify and recognize companies and individuals who maintain compliance with regulatory requirements and apply innovative techniques to reclaim land following mining activities. Through these awards, the IMCC commends companies that have taken extra efforts to implement techniques which protect people and the environment from any adverse effects of mining, while at the same time allowing access to minerals that are vital to our nation’s economy and the well-being of our society.
