Dig into the future of mining, steel and metals production
Mining is an indispensable part of the global economy and makes modern life possible. Everything from the titanium and aluminum that allows an airplane to be both lightweight and incredibly strong, to the fuels for nuclear and fossil-fired power plants, to the copper in the wires that make up our communications infrastructure—all of these and many more find their origins in mining. It is even responsible for an increasingly important share of our petroleum needs thanks to tar sands mining and extraction technologies.
Steel and other metals production have a major influence on our lives; the vehicles we drive, the buildings we work in, the bridges we travel over, and the planes we fly along with countless other applications globally. Steel and metal are a core part of society and producing the various products requires reliable and efficient operations to be competitive in the global marketplace.
