2015 Industry Partnership Award
The concept of InfoMine was first developed by Andy Robertson and Graham Baldwin in 1989. The company was incorporated in 1990 as Robertson Info-Data Inc. with the objective of electronically providing worldwide mining information services. The commercial development of the Internet resulted in the establishment of the first InfoMine website in 1994 and Robertson Info-Data became InfoMine.
InfoMine is one of the pioneers in the commercial application of the Internet. Over the last two decades, the company has expanded to include data resources, online newsletters, professional development and technical conferences. From finding a job on CareerMine, taking courses with EduMine, getting Mining.com delivered to you, understanding your project economics with cost estimating tools, having your company listed in our directory, to searching its vast companies and properties databases, InfoMine is the world leader in providing mining and exploration information online.
In 2001, EduMine was created to provide on-going, cost efficient continuing education to the global mining and geoscience communities. Currently, EduMine offers over 160 English and 30 Spanish online courses and over 60 short courses and live webcasts covering all aspects of mining.
In 2006, InfoMine acquired Western Mine Engineering from Otto Schumacher, creating the CostMine division. Otto got his start working at San Manuel as a young mining engineer. The CostMine division provides up-to-date mine cost estimating tools for feasibility studies, exploration decisions and economic analysis. Publications such as Mining Cost Service and Mine & Mill Equipment Costs Guide have been staples for mining engineers and cost estimators since 1983.
By the numbers, our Careers division connects over 57,000 candidates with employers and recruiters worldwide. Mining.com, our online newsletter is delivered to over 500,000 subscribers daily. IntelligenceMine contains data on over 33,000 mines, projects and processing facilities to quickly identify business opportunities, maps and rich data for researchers and investors.
