To help remind us all about the vital role of mining and its importance, Timmins celebrates Mining Week.
Mining enriches our lives with everyday essentials. Ontario’s minerals help improve the air we breathe and the food we eat. Minerals help save lives and improve our health.
From nickel batteries to copper wiring, silica in light bulbs to uranium for nuclear power, minerals bring us energy and light. More than 30 minerals and metals are used to produce computers, televisions, stereo systems and kitchen appliances. Minerals also open our word to travel. Airplanes, cars, trucks, boats and trains are built with cobalt, steel, iron, copper, zinc and aluminum.
