The Iron Ore Alliance has named Sen. David Tomassoni the winner of our inaugural “Hard Rock Miners” award in recognition of his outstanding commitment and contributions to Minnesota’s taconite industry. Sen. Tomassoni, who has devotedly represented the Iron Range at the Minnesota Legislature since 1993, announced last summer that he was diagnosed with ALS.

The “Hard Rock Miners” award is made of taconite directly from U. S. Steel’s Minntac facility. We are immensely grateful for Sen. Tomassoni’s tireless commitment in representing our community and our industry at the State Capitol.

We created a dynamic, informative video to raise awareness of our vibrant iron mining industry and how it’s the foundation for modern life, tiled “Minnesota Iron Mining: Making Progress Possible.”

Minnesota’s iron mining industry has served an essential role in the growth and prosperity of the nation for more than a century. But not everyone understands the connection between iron mining and steel, or the importance of steel in our everyday lives. We hope this video showcases the impact the Iron Range has every day — in our lives, our communities, the economy and the global supply chain.

Check out all the Iron Ore Alliance videos on our YouTube channel.
