Joseph Baird, Esq., receives Lifetime Achievement Award for mining
BOISE, ID, Dec. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - American Exploration & Mining
Association awarded Boise-based mining lawyer, Joseph H. Baird, Esq.,
its Lifetime Achievement Award. Baird was honored with the
association's highest individual award at American Exploration & Mining
Association's (AEMA) 119th annual meeting. The award recognizes his distinguished work on behalf
of the mining industry, strategic minerals issues and the environment.
Currently, Baird serves on the board of American CuMo Mining Corporation
(CuMoCo) which manages the Idaho-based CuMo Project, one of the world's
largest molybdenum deposits, and he is a partner in the Idaho-based
mining law firm of Baird Hanson LLP.
"Joe's nationally recognized expertise is exactly why CuMoCo selected
him to help guide the CuMo Project," said Shaun Dykes, CEO of CuMoCo.
"His knowledge of the mining industry, experience with permitting
projects of this magnitude and advocacy for environmentally conscious
practices makes him invaluable to our team."
The American Exploration and Mining Association, which was formerly
known as the Northwest Mining Association, has membership that spans
the U.S. and Canada. Baird has worked to advance the mining industry
through his service with AEMA since 2003. His roles with AEMA have
included a term as president in 2011 and two terms as a board member.
Additionally, he served as Environmental Committee Chair, Strategic
Minerals Co-Chair and Environmental Committee Co-Chair.
AEMA's members and experts are instrumental in shaping U.S. public
policy that guides mineral exploration and mine development. Baird
helped prepare AEMA comments on the National Strategic and Critical
Minerals Production Act of 2013 which passed the U.S. House of
Representatives in October. As an industry-leading expert, Baird
presented testimony before the U.S. Congress Subcommittee on Energy and
the Environment in February 2011. His testimony addressed strategic
minerals issues and the environment.
Baird graduated magna cum laude from Colgate University in 1976 with
degrees in geology and political science and from the University of
Virginia, School of Law in 1981. Prior to law school, Baird was with
the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in Washington, D.C. He has
also worked in-house in the law departments of the American Mining
Congress in Washington, D.C. in 1979 and for Exxon Minerals Company,
USA and Union Pacific Resources.
The U.S. mining industry and Idaho's CuMo Project continues to benefit
from Baird's guidance as he promotes responsible mining practices and
sustainable resource development.

actual results of current exploration activities; changes in project
parameters as plans continue to be refined; future prices of
molybdenum; possible variations in grade or recovery rates; failure of

contracted parties to perform; labour disputes and other risks of the
mining industry; delays in obtaining governmental approvals or
financing or in the completion of exploration, as well as those factors
disclosed in the company's publicly filed documents. Although the
