Mining represents a major share of the American economy, particularly in the western states of Utah, Texas, Arizona, Nevada and Colorado. With its vast expertise in ore processing, Multotec Canada can contribute to this industry in different regions of the world, including the United States.
UTAH: mineral riches
Utah is relatively rich in mineral resources. The primary minerals exploited there are gold, copper, lead and uranium. Their extraction and processing require various techniques and types of equipment, and Multotec Canada is proud to be able to offer its vast range of products.
TEXAS: vast and fertile
Texas is the second-largest US state after Alaska, and its mining industry has a large presence. The region is the largest American producer of gypsum, magnesium and sulphur. In 2015, Texas was the seventh-largest coal producer in the US. Another abundant resource in Texas is lignite, a form of soft coal concentrated mainly in the north and south-western regions of the state. It is usually found near the surface of mines and so is easily accessible using modern technology. Multotec is happy to contribute to all this production.
ARIZONA: desert terrain
Arizona’s economy is heavily tourism-based because its national parks, prairies and mountains attract travellers in quest of its magnificent landscapes. Its desert terrain is also beneficial for the mining industry, which is the second-largest economic sector in the state. According to 2017 data, the total economic impact of hard rock mining is the equivalent of $4.29 billion! The ore most commonly mined is copper, and the many types of equipment provided by Multotec Canada make an active contribution to its processing.
NEVADA: gold producer
Nevada is no less than the fourth-ranked gold producer in the world. It is also tops the list of producers of gypsum, barite, magnesite, lithium and diatomite. Obviously the mining industry is at the heart of Nevada’s economy. Its two largest mining corporations are Newmont Mining and Barrick Gold, and they are the reason why Nevada ranks so high in the mining world.
COLORADO: job creator
The mining sector in Colorado generates over 57,000 jobs. Many products from Multotec Canada make life easier for workers in Colorado and throughout the US.
Multotec Canada is proud to be an active participant in mining industry growth in the western United States. In collaborating with numerous American mines, it is constantly broadening its expertise, knowledge and partnerships.
