Mining Right for a Sustainable Future - Exploration and Mining

As the demand for mined minerals increases, everyone—from students to miners to governments and global corporations—must understand how to work together to meet those needs while protecting the world in which we live.

“Ground Rules: Mining Right for a Sustainable Future” follows the development of new and operating mines as geologists, engineers and mine managers tackle complex problems. The film draws on the experiences and achievements of other mine sites to illustrate creative and core concepts of sustainable development and social responsibility. Embark on a 23-minute tour across almost every continent—to Australia, Canada, Chile, Ghana, Indonesia and the United States—and meet a new generation of passionate and creative people working to bring us the materials, fuels and minerals on which our modern world depends.
