Natural Resource of Canada

Who depends on a natural resource of Canada for their survival? Many of our Canadian industries. It could be energy, water, metals, agricultural products, or many other types of these resources.  They use and economically (and ETHICALLY)  exploit our resources and we're okay with that because they provide jobs and stimulate the economy, provided they respect the environment.

They are also encouraged to take care of our resources and the natural setting in which they work.  For the most part this page is concerned with mining of various types.

Our national economy depends on the Canadian mining industry. And this includes strip mining, coal mining and even diamond mining.

As a result of this, we have a federal department called Natural Resources Canada, NRCan. It oversees energy, minerals and forestry amongst other industries.

NRCan provides us with a master database of our resources as well, even though the provincial governments regulate companies working withing their borders.

What issues will you and your staff need to deal with? There are many, and it can be overwhelming. We will start simple.

Where is the mining equipment located? That makes relatively little difference, as the site operations, the planet temperatures, the environment and the atmosphere earth has could be similarly affected regardless of geography. The nature of the air and water emissions may depend on the location, though.

Fortunately, groups of environmental consultants with the versatility to work on these mining jobs worldwide are available. And they can specially fit a solution to pollution, your resource conservation and your other environmental requirements.

Scheduling and completing projects, though seemingly daunting, shall remain an achievable goal, as the allocation of employee hours and other resources continues to be flexible.

Ever heard of the canary in the coal mine. Air quality experts make it an outstanding unit and the mining company benefits greatly. So does any geological being dealt with.
