By now we’ve all had plenty of time to reflect on 2021 and if you’re like most people, 2022 was greeted with open arms and blatant optimism.

This year we focus on ESG, and our role in environmental, social, and governance issues, to ensure that your operating best practices support ESG issues through the technologies and services we provide.
While mining has often gotten a bad wrap, we as miners know our work is critical to the sustainability of our planet by giving its 7.9 billion human inhabitants access to renewable energy infrastructures. We know, and experts agree, that the benefits of renewable energy far outweigh the costs. As the citizens of the globe seek alternative energy sources, so increases the demand for supporting technologies, the components of which are only obtainable through mining. As the need for hydropower, geothermal, wind, and solar increase, so it goes that copper, cobalt, lithium, iron, boron, neodymium, and many, many minerals, are needed. It’s never been more true to say if it isn’t grown, it has to be mined. Employing the right technologies for the job is our way of ensuring that our customers mine in a smart and conscious way, for minimum impact and maximum sustainability.
Keep on keepin’ on.
