    The American Exploration & Mining Association (AEMA) has selected Squire Patton Boggs partner Carolyn McIntosh to receive the 2019 Lyle Taylor Starters Award, in addition to being elected to the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees.

    The award, which is not granted yearly, recognizes an individual who has launched a new, innovative initiative for AEMA. Ms. McIntosh added value to AEMA’s Annual Meeting with the introduction of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits to the offered courses.

    Ms. McIntosh counsels clients on complex environmental compliance matters and environmental, natural resources and commercial litigation. She has several decades of experience in the extractives industry sector, including copper, gold, silver, iron, potash and lithium mining operations and asset purchase, lease and sales transactions – both in the US and internationally; as well as operational requirements; permitting and compliance; and bonding, reclamation and closure. Ms. McIntosh has devoted much of her career to addressing exposure, remediation and cost recovery litigation related to contaminated sites under state and US federal laws in approximately a dozen US states. She has been the lead environmental counsel on dozens of site remediation matters, concerning regulatory compliance, arbitration and litigation.

    Ms. McIntosh was honored at a December 5, 2019, luncheon during AEMA’s Annual Meeting. She presented on abandoned mined lands issues in the New Mining in Old Districts session and also participated in the “Politics Matter: Implications to Mining in America,” session later in the week discussing developments in water law in 2019.
