Responsible mineral extraction is essential to modern society
As the names of transformative periods like the “Bronze Age” and “Iron Age” suggest, mining has been the foundation of society since the earliest times, with advances in technology and civilization requiring the use of materials only obtained by mining. Today, these mined commodities are vital to everyday life around the world. Whether it is the gold bonding wire that ensures the reliability of the ubiquitous microchip, or the few kilograms of cobalt contained in the lithium-ion battery powering an electric vehicle, commodities support an improved quality of life for the world’s 7 billion inhabitants. Our homes, vehicles, smart phones - even the sunscreen we wear to protect us while playing outdoors - all require commodities from the ground.
