Advertise with Us!

Because we publish only 6 times a year, our coverage is more in-depth than other papers. We also feature coverage on companies that service the mining industry. Circulation includes sending the Miners News to paid subscribers and complimentary mailing to Manufacturers, Suppliers and Service Companies. The paper goes directly to Purchasing Managers at their operations and key locations. The list is put together from listings in the annually published Mining & Aggregates Directories.

Each issue of Miners News is also distributed at between 4 and 7 Trade Shows and Association Meetings for the Mining & Aggregates Industries. This offers the advertiser a much longer extended amount of exposure over a 2-month period of time for each edition.

Over 70% of our advertisers maintain their advertising plans with Miners News and the Directories throughout the year as an integral part of their advertising strategies.

Advertisers are encouraged to send their News Releases. We place your releases on the same page or very near the page where your ad appears. Pictures are welcome with the releases and draw the eye. This helps increase your advertising exposure space at no additional cost.

Links to Advertisers are posted on the Web site in the Professional Directory.

PREPARING FILES: To avoid reproduction problems and additional charges:

  • Include all printer and screen fonts and supporting postscript fonts and graphics with your ad file. If fonts are not included, we reserve the right to substitute fonts that closely match the original.
