Exploration

What we constantly see when interviewing individuals for stories in Canadian Mining & Energy is that the people in the exploration industry are an optimistic bunch. These passionate prospectors confess that this character trait is essential to the job—they must bash a lot of rocks before they hit pay dirt. But for them, it’s the thrill of discovery that drives them—and their excitement is contagious.
