Ciner (pronounced ‘jin-ner’) Resources Corporation is a global leader in the natural soda ash industry. Our success is the direct result of the dedication and hard work of our employees. As a result, we are committed to the well-being of our employees and our surroundings, including the communities and environment where we live and work. At Ciner, safety is a value, not just a priority. In fact, if a job cannot be completed safely, it simply will not be done. We believe the most important thing to come out of the mine are the miners.

Our mission is to continually nurture a culture of security, integrity, leadership, commitment, and respect. Ciner’s behavior-based, principle-driven safety, health processes, and programs encourage effective management systems and employee involvement. Because of this, Ciner’s Wyoming Big Island Mine and Production Facility is a four-time winner of the U.S. Department of Labor Sentinels of Safety award for being the country’s safest underground mine. With seven national mine rescue and three international surface rescue championships, our mine and surface rescue teams consistently rank among the best in the nation. These numerous awards not only showcase exceptional safety performance, but are proof of an ongoing commitment to the well-being of our employees.
