Leading expertise opens the borders
Canada continues to be a world leader in minerals
extraction. Canadian-based companies are operating
mines around the world; Canadian equipment
and service suppliers have global branches
and are shipping their products to virtually every
continent. 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.
