Driving a step-change in the way we design, build and operate mines to reduce waste, minimise carbon emissions, improve worker health and safety and contribute to the development of local communities through transformative partnerships and innovation.
Innovative technologies made possible through and employed by mining are providing the mineral and energy resources essential for a better life and a better future.
Minerals play a leading role in nearly every aspect of the modern experience. Copper, zinc and other minerals are essential in electric and hybrid vehicles. Silver and copper’s natural antibacterial qualities make them ideal for medical applications. And copper’s high thermal conductivity makes it a preferred material for wiring homes and office buildings.
And when it comes to the energy that is powering today’s innovations, new technologies are making combustion of coal more efficient and cleaner. Dramatic reductions of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and particulate matter that have already been achieved show how advancements in emissions technology hold even more promise for the future.
