|Utah Mining and Processing Industry Collaborative Mining is important to Utahs economy and the needs and interests of Utahs mining industry intersect significantly with the visions and roadmaps the mining industry developed with the Department of Energys Office of Industrial Technologies. The fit is so good that in 2000 we launched the Utah Mining and Processing Industry Collaborative Minerals (UMPIC) with support from ITP and the State of Utah. The University of Utah Engineering Experiment Station leads the collaborative. The collaborative with its partners will work with the mining, metals and processing industries to enhance waste minimization, energy efficiency, process productivity, and competitiveness. More . . .
Mining in Utah The Utahs mining industry is a significant part of the States industrial economy, accounting for 1.8 billion of the 8 billion dollar industrial sector, and 8,000 of the 274,800 industrial sector jobs (Utah Department of Workforce Services 1999p). . Mining workers had the highest average annual wage ($46,200), significantly higher than the average $26,500 annual wage. (Department of Workforce Services 1999) Many of Utahs largest private-sector employers are mining operations. Nearly half of the sixteen industrial businesses with over 500 employees are in the mining and metals sectors. Four are in mining and three in primary and fabricated metals. Utahs mining industry is of national importance. At $1.76 billion in 1997, Utahs non-fuels mineral-industry production value was fifth in the nation. More . . .
Capabilities Matrix Mining Prepared by the Laboratory Coordinating Council August 2000, this matrix estimates the mining research and development capabilities of the Laboratory Coordinating Council National Laboratories. The technology need areas listed were given highest priority by the mining industry while it was developing its Mining Industry Roadmap for Crosscutting Technologies (PDF 99 KB). Please note that many of the capabilities are in related applications and may not have been applied directly to mining research and development. More . . .
