As we have mentioned before, minerals are in almost every product in our homes, including many of the plates on our Thanksgiving tables, and in the phones we use to call our family and friends on the holiday. Metals mining provides copper to our cabling and power systems, steel pipes to heat up our houses, metal alloy nails and tools to build our houses, and silverware to eat our Thanksgiving meals. And cement, made with limestone and other minerals, was probably used for the very foundations of those houses in which we gather. This week we want to thank all those who are mining and processing the minerals we need for the products we use everyday that can’t be grown.
Happy Thanksgiving to our U.S. readers… and thank you to all our readers who are advancing the mining industry every day and look here for the latest cement, coal, & minerals articles.
