Minerals and Mining

Overview Industry Overview:

Mining is at the core of our evolution, enabling us to create the tools that gave way to civilization. In fact, the oldest known mine is approximately 43,000 years old. For centuries, minerals and mining – from coal to gold to potash - have been a vital player in any economy. As society becomes more environmentally conscious, there is a rising demand for natural minerals, but also for more sustainable mining practices. It is not sufficient for these minerals to enhance the environmental safety of final products if their extraction is as harmful as that which they are replacing.

One trend which has increased the environmental sustainability and worker safety of mining practices is the shift from sub-surface mining to open pit mining. Technological advances have enhanced this industry, allowing for reduced energy and resource consumption and minimizing the risk of human error. Challenges which this industry continues to face include an ageing specialist workforce, susceptibility to natural disasters, and economic volatility.
