“A thriving minerals industry is essential for Alaska’s economic growth,” said Alaska Dept. of Natural Resources Commissioner Dan Sullivan.
Denver, CO, and Vancouver, Canada (PRWEB) October 28, 2012
MICROMINE, the leading global provider of intuitive software solutions to the exploration and mining industry, in a show of support to the Alaskan mining industry, will join with more than a thousand others to participate in the annual Alaska Miners’ Association Convention and Trade Show, 6-9 November 2012, in Anchorage, Alaska.
Mining is critical to Alaska’s economy and to the world. Total gross mineral production in 2011 was US$3.8 billion with US$1.3 billion of that exported. The mining industry supports the employment of thousands of Alaskans with an average annual wage of US$100,000. Mining companies pay hundreds of millions of dollars to the state and local governments further positively sustaining those economies. Mining helps keep Alaska’s unemployment rate below the national average at 7.5%. Not only is mining an economic necessity, Alaska’s abundant natural resources are critical for energy independence and for supplying zinc, lead, gold, silver, coal and construction materials.
MICROMINE’s expertise in the mineral exploration and mining industry contributes to the increased productivity, lower costs and operational control that help mining companies across the globe maximize their profitability.
MICROMINE’s Vancouver team will be meeting with convention visitors during the trade show at booth 123L. Ms. Carrie Urdiga, Business Solutions Executive, Mr. Jonathan Thompson, Pitram Business Development Manager, and Mr. Alan LeBlanc, Senior Technical Support Analyst, will be on hand to showcase MICROMINE’s latest product offerings such as Geobank Mobile and Coal Measure, along with Micromine, Geobank and Pitram.
