The METI Program aims to enable transformational change in how the mining industry obtains and consumes energy, and to integrate activities across the mining value chain business cycle. The Program focuses on leveraging SMI’s existing mining and processing operational know-how to identify strategic energy and cross-disciplinary initiatives for improved operational, environmental and social performance.
