The Great Debate

The Great Debate is intended to be a good-natured debate about the mining industry with a goal of raising funds for the U.S. National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum. The opinions expressed here are those of the author and not necessarily of SME or Mining Engineering . Follow The Great Debate, where some of the world’s leading braggarts from six mining sectors have been enlisted to brag, roast, cajole and otherwise humorously make their case for being the most important sector to mining.

The Great Debate aims to settle, once and for all, which sector of the mining industry is the most important. You have read what the sector leaders have to say, now it’s your turn. Join the Great Debate by commenting below. Please keep it civil, after all, we are all in this together.
