3M Mining and Metallurgy Solutions helps improve health and safety and environmental performance

Mining companies know that corporate social responsibility is more than good PR; it requires meeting and exceeding the increasing regulatory requirements, ethical investor influence and changing societal expectations that will ultimately affect long-term outcomes.

3M Mining and Metallurgy Solutions offers a range of products that improve mining environmental and community impacts and contribute to safer, healthier operations. Mining companies need to seek continuous improvement in health and safety and environmental performance. 3M Mining solutions for dust suppression, purification, matting to reduce acid mists, and corrosion protection products all contribute to a more sustainable mine site.

3M™ Nomad™ Matting

3M™ Nomad™ Matting

Nomad Matting is designed for heavy-traffic applications to help reduce the amount of dust that is being tracked out of the mine facilities on the tires of trucks. When placed at the exit of the mine, trucks drive over the matting. This method traps the dust that the wheels have on them, helping to reduce the dirt and moisture that may be released into the environment.
