2019 Illinois Mining Institute Annual Meeting

Every year the IMI holds an annual meeting and expo to have the opportunity to show-case our region and the benefits of mining.  Our other reasons? It’s for industry professionals to learn from each other, promote their products, and show what we, as an industry, have to offer. Our members are industry professionals throughout the Illinois Basin, including educators, and state and governmental organizations.  We welcome member and non-members alike to join us as the IMI celebrates its 127th year!
