Welcome to the official Virginia Mining Institute website.

Virginia Mining Institute-Northern division is a non-profit group that promotes safety of the mining industry through monthly meetings that allow speakers to present their products used in the mining industry. We hold a three day mine rescue contest that allows teams to train and compete for trophies that allows us to raise money for the scholarships. The scholarships are given to students of coal mining families that attend Southwest Virginia Community College. 

The correct email to return the mine rescue contest forms is cviers@alphanr.com.
