It’s an exciting time to be in the mining business. Despite a recent pull-back in financing and increasing regulations, the world needs raw materials for sustenance and growth. Whether from the bottom of the ocean floor or the reaches of outer space, mineral extraction is in the plan. Mining visibility is also increasing with television shows showcasing gold mining in the harsh environment of the Yukon, in the dense jungles of Ghana, and on the cold, dark seafloor of the Bering Sea. There’s also a race to mine rare earth elements to supply the growing demand for high-technology products. We are advancing mining, and we will be blogging about all segments of the mining process — from early stage exploration through processing — including mapping/planning, extraction, material handling, concentration, process control, laboratory analysis, and data management. You’ll hear from the experts about the latest in next-gen mining instruments, equipment and software that promote healthier, cleaner and safer operations.
