Leading expertise opens the borders

Canada continues to be a world leader in minerals extraction.

Canadian professionals are leaders in the field, wherever they are.

The minerals industry offers vast opportunities to explore the world and to benefit from emerging economies. It poses challenges unique to the countries and cultures encountered, and provides some of the most rewarding experiences to the individual, and some of the most lucrative prospects to companies.

In recognition of the great work Canadians are doing throughout the global minerals industry, CIM Magazine has chosen three success stories to profile. Read on to learn about the experiences and achievements of a Canadian-based equipment supplier making waves in South America; a mid-size Canadian mining company with operations outside the border; and a Canadian engineer making his mark in Brazil.
