IECC and SIC will be holding a mine rescue skills competition on June 12 & 13, 2018 at SIC. There will be six teams a day competing. Events such as Mine Rescue Hose Management and two field exercises will keep participants engaged all day. Everyone is welcome! Please contact SIC for more information.
Every year the IMI holds an annual meeting and expo to have the opportunity to show-case our region and the benefits of coal. However, this year the event will be called the Illinois Basin Coal and Mining Expo to combine the IMI counterparts in Indiana and Kentucky making the show even better than before. The IMI, Indiana Coal Council, Hoosiers Count on Coal, and Kentucky Coal Association are all organizations that promote mining-related activities. Our members are industry professionals throughout the Illinois Basin, including educators, and state and governmental organizations.
