American Slate’s commitment to quality extends to the lives of the miners and craftsmen who work in our partner quarries. More than a quarter century ago — long before there was any public outcry on the issue — American Slate took a stand against child labor and other unfair labor practices. We maintain our position unequivocally and work only with those quarries that share our humanitarian values.
