Engage and learn

Although life seems to be very busy at the moment for me on a personal level, I am going to try to be more engaged and knowledgeable about the mining industry and “big picture” viewpoints on the state of the industry and how it is changing. I came across this website today for the International Council on Mining and Metals . From their website: “The International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) is dedicated to improving sustainable development performance. ICMM’s vision, values, goal and objectives create a platform for members to work together and with others to strengthen the contribution of mining, minerals and metals to sustainable development.”  Sustainable developement is a term often used by the mining industry, but what does it really mean? Next post I am hoping to reflect on the information I find on this website.
