A couple years after the 2004 International
Mine Expo I ran into a situation underground, and I knew I
saw the perfect product at the mine show in Las Vegas that
would be the remedy to my problem. The trouble was, I
no longer remembered the company name, or what they called
their product, and I had trashed all the info
I gathered at the show. The kids had all the pens and
pencils, all I had left from the expo were a couple hats and
some good memories. I did keep all the
business cards, but there really isn't allot of information
on a business card, a good percentage of them don't even
have a web address.
Yes, I did resolve my problem underground, I even found the
company I was trying to remember, but it took several
searches on the internet. I remember thinking
that there really should be some place a miner could go, on
the internet, some where that all the suppliers of the mines
could easily be found.
virtualminexpo.com is that web site, it's for the scientists
and engineers, as well as the managers and the miners, if
you make your living at the mines, this
web site is for you.
24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year,
virtualminexpo.com is here with the information you are
looking for. The Virtual Mine eXpo is not trying to
the real world, physical mine show, VMExpo is just filling
the void of time between shows.
I like to think of the
Virtual Mine eXpo as an exercise that works out the Mining
