COMPANY PROFILE-PAID ADVERTISEMENT Weir Minerals: Material Matters™ For more than 140 years, innovation has been a tradition at Weir Minerals, a leading supplier to the global mining industry that delivers end-to-end solutions for all mining, transportation, milling, processing, and wastewater management activities At Weir Minerals, Material Matters™. The basic premise of Material Matters: You get more out of a Weir Minerals product because of our relentless commitment to R&D resulting in superior products, enhanced output and reliability, which improve financial outcomes. The cost of operating a mine has steadily increased the last 20 years. According to recent reports, the cost of installing and operating a new coal mine has increased nearly three-fold in the last few years. The story is nearly the same around globe and no one anticipates any relief in the near future. As these pressures continue to build on the mining industry, mine operators are investing in products that are higher quality and last significantly longer. All while improving safety for employees and the surrounding environment. Weir Minerals is devoted to the newest and most advanced technologies, constantly striving to extend product performance and reduce cost. This results in products that simply outwork and outlast anything in the field. The mining industry relies on Weir Minerals for quality and innovative products and services. Weir Minerals' commitment to the mining industry runs deep because the company focuses on listening to its customers. The company's personnel are in mining operations around the world on a daily basis, rolling up their sleeves and working on equipment, talking with mine operators and learning about the pressures they face. As a leading supplier to the global mining industry, Weir Minerals is committed to doing its part to understand the global economy and building products that improve mining efficiency, which ultimately improve the bottom line. For example, The Linatex® Wear Indicator System transmits and receives messages, providing a revolutionary early warning system to mine operators. This system is superior to competitors' models because it detects more than just a break in the wire; it measures a change in resistance for more accurate results. The system saves time, money, and lives by notifying operators when a pipe needs to be replaced or fixed. The development of "smart" rubber linings is just one of the many technologies Weir Minerals is able to develop in order to improve mining profitability. You get a lot more out of a product from Weir Minerals. The reason is simple. Weir Minerals put a lot more into it. We go the extra mile—with our metallurgy, with our R&D, with our testing, with our support service. Our products go well beyond industry standards. It matters what we do. Every part of every product, every little thing, every step of the way. Because in the long run, it all matters. JUNE 2013 • E&MJ 5
