Companies from the around the globe are pushing for the consideration of nuclear energy to guarantee the ongoing energy supply of the mining industry, as well as to help reduce the carbon footprint. The next 57 years will see a surge in mining investments. There are important export opportunities in this industry, particularly for those offering technologies and products that bring cost reduction, improved productivity and more efficient and cleaner processes.
