Mining companies like Rio Tinto are spending millions of dollars on data and analytics, but what does it all mean for American manufacturing?
The answer is not what you think.
It could change everything.
article Mining industry statistics: Total number of mines in the U.S. by sector, 2011: 12,631Source: Federal Bureau of InvestigationThe number of American mines is up slightly from the year before.
The U.N. estimates there were about 12,000 active mines in 2011, down from about 12.5 million in 2011.
But that’s partly because of a spike in the number of new mining companies opening in 2011 and a drop in the amount of existing companies that are expanding.
Mining companies are now investing millions of additional dollars in data and analysis.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, mining companies in 2011 spent $1.7 billion on data analytics and analytics.
That’s an increase of 4% over 2010, according to the BLS.
Data is critical to mining companies.
It helps the companies pinpoint areas to drill for ore and helps them monitor their operations.
According the U.,S.
Department of Labor, mining firms spend about $2 billion a year on data.
That makes mining the fourth-largest sector of the economy behind oil and gas, construction and retail trade.
But mining data is also a tool that helps companies identify and fix problems.
For example, if an accident occurs in a mine, mining data could be used to determine where workers are at work, and it could help the company determine how to handle safety issues.
Mining data is critical because mining companies want to be able to identify where their product will be used and when it will be produced, said Peter C. Schilling, a senior research analyst at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a think tank in Washington, D.C.
Data from mining companies also helps the federal government.
In 2010, the government spent $9.1 billion on mining data.
The government spends about $5 billion on safety, health and safety data each year.
The data helps it figure out what products can be used in a particular region.
The government uses the data to improve safety, make sure workers are getting the best training and make sure they get the right supplies and the right kind of equipment to work in those areas, said Steven Schulz, a professor of environmental science and engineering at Virginia Tech.
If a mine is leaking or if there’s a leak in the mine, for example, that can make a difference in how the company can manage operations.
The mining industry is investing heavily in data analytics, according the Mining Information Management Association.
The group estimates that mining companies spend about 2.4 billion dollars a year collecting and analyzing data.
It has partnered with more than 200 organizations, including the Department of Energy, the U,S.
Chamber of Commerce, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Office of Mine Safety and Health, the Department for Business and Economic Research, the National Mining Association and the National Academy of Sciences.
The biggest money has gone to mining analytics, which the mining industry has been spending on.
The mining industry spent $2.4 trillion in 2011 on data, according a U.K. mining analyst.
The American Petroleum Institute, which is the industry’s largest trade group, has spent more than $2 million on data since 2010.
Mining industry data has helped it spot and fix dangerous conditions and to respond to problems.
But it has also allowed the industry to identify problems with the environment and to make improvements.
For example, the mining company was forced to stop releasing toxic wastewater to the public after it was discovered that the water contained arsenic and other toxins.
The wastewater was used to mine copper in Texas.
A similar issue is now in the news in Oregon.
The American Petroleum Association and other mining groups say that mining data can help identify problems in areas where the industry is already operating.
It can also help to improve the quality of the wastewater treatment process that mining water uses to remove pollutants and to avoid contaminating groundwater, the APA said in a statement.
But mining companies have a history of not doing their part to help solve problems.
Mining was once an industry dominated by men who had big fortunes, according Toon.
But the industry began to shift away from men who were more comfortable with women in the 1950s and 1960s, when the government began mandating the hiring of women.
The problem is that women are not in demand, because the men who make the most money are still making the most profits, Toon said.
Women were able to get a foothold in mining in the 1960s and 1970s, but mining was a man’s job.
Women were often excluded from the mines, even though men were needed to mine for gold and silver, according Peter Schulz.
In the 1970s and 1980s, the number one jobs for women was cleaning bathrooms, and they weren’t hired because they were considered to
