is an important part of daily living without which the conveniences
and technologies enjoyed by society today would be non-existent.
From what we do and how we do it, to where we go, how we get there
and what we wear, our lives are influenced by mining.
explosives to the Mining industry has been the foundation of Austin
Powder for many years. Underground coal producers in Appalachia
provided Austin the opportunity to establish itself in the mining
segment. Since then, the Austin name has earned respect around the
world, and our market shares in coal, taconite, precious metals,
and surface and
underground markets have grown steadily.
to past generations, mining today has an amazingly improved safety
record, and it continues to improve all the time. Mine management
and legislative actions have played a key role in this improvement.
Additionally, technological advancements in mining equipment and
methods have made mining a safer industry.
