Report on mining in 2012

The Report on Mineral Exploration Activities continues to evolve, and the 2012 edition includes occupational health and safety issues.

In the first pages of the Report, readers will find highlights and a brief description of the global economic situation and of geoscience work carried out or planned by the MRN.

In addition to the topics mentioned in the introduction, the new pages of the report focus on environmental protection and Aboriginal relations. For both, it highlights, without denying environmental liabilities, the mining industry’s willingness, today, to develop mines responsibly, sustainably and harmoniously. Finally, it addresses occupational health and safety issues to show that the mining industry’s record in this area is more than positive.

The 2012 Report on Mineral Exploration Activities is available free of charge in PDF format on the MRN website.
