This course provides students with an understanding of the metals and minerals industry and its impact on the global economy. We examine the mining life cycle and the defining characteristics of the metals and minerals industry which address all aspects related to the discovery and production of metals and minerals. We also explore the materials life cycle which starts with metals as the raw materials for industries that produce products that are vital to society. We then explore the relationships between companies that produce metals and those that consume metals.
