10th Annual Alaska Mining Day

Tuesday, May 10, 2022

Wedgewood Resort

Fairbanks, AK


We’re thrilled to be celebrating the 10th Annual Alaska Mining Day in person! 


Alaska Mining Day was created through legislation in 2013 sponsored by Senator Cathy Giessel “to recognize and honor the intrepid individuals and industry that played an enormous role in settling and developing the territory and the state and that continue to contribute to the economy of the state.”


The legislation allows for May 10 of each year to be observed by celebratory events and activities. We’ve had to take a couple of years off from these important celebrations, and we are ready to make up for it!


Schedule of Events


2022 Alaska Mining Day will  be held at the Wedgewood Resort in Fairbanks, Alaska and include a day of presentations outlining relevant and timely issues relating to mining in Alaska, and will wrap up with a party where we can get together and celebrate our achievements!  We are also excited to partner with the Greater Fairbanks Chamber of Commerce and feature Alaska Mining Day at their General Membership Luncheon (held onsite at the Taiga Center).

9:00-11:30am: Presentations in Gazebo Room 

Noon-1:30pm: Fairbanks Chamber Luncheon at Taiga Center

2:00-4:00pm: Presentations in Gazebo Room 

4:00-6:00pm: Alaska Mining Day Reception Party in Borealis Room 























Alaska Mining Day Celebration Reception


Join us from 4-6pm for a reception where we celebrate some major accomplishments of the last year and toast individuals that have given such significant contributions to our industry.  The reception will include an exclusive featured event beer and cocktail, other beverages, appetizers, and a guaranteed great time visiting with your fellow miners and members of the community.




This event will be open to AMA members and the general public.  If you’re not a member of AMA, and just curious about mining in Alaska, we would love to welcome you as our guest!
