We provide insurance for all types of mining and quarry operations, as well as for machine shops and other companies that support the industry.

One-stop for all coverages

Unlike most carriers, Skyward Specialty is committed to serving the complete needs of mining customers. We cover several types of mining, including aggregates, precious metals, and rare earth elements. And we provide these customers the full range of coverages, including workers’ compensation, general liability, commercial auto, and more. Our customers and distribution partners count on Skyward Specialty because we focus on insuring, not excluding. Subsidence, pollution, water, blasting – we’ve got you covered. Plus, we have mine engineers who will go to sites to provide inspections and loss control services to make operations safer, reduce claims, and drive down costs.

Executive Vice President of Energy, Jimmy Godfrey, discusses how Skyward Specialty takes a 360° approach to serving clients in mining and all other industries. 


We know the mining industry inside and out and all of its insurance coverage idiosyncrasies. Our leaders have more than 50 years of experience between them, meeting the needs of mining customers and their agents, and our entire team is ready to help you.

Jimmy Godfrey and Rob Roberts are true professionals. They understand that clients and brokers need information immediately. Both of them make themselves available because they understand this is a relationship business. Jimmy and Rob find ways to write accounts and provide solutions rather than excuses. We are very fortunate to have Skyward Specialty as business partners and look forward to growing our business with them.
