Host Janet Sheriff takes you on a personal behind the scenes journey into the world’s greatest economic engine and wealth creator: the mining sector. Often misunderstood and misrepresented, mining drives the global economy and works in the western world to extremely high environmental standards. Mining, important to the well-being of everyone, is driven by independent and colourful characters who toil away finding mines, building mines and creating job, businesses and a high standard for living for all. Often working in challenging and remote conditions these individuals share their tales of hope, perseverance and larger than life stories on the road less travelled. Stories that lead to the discovery of gold, silver, battery metals and more and the development of an industry that is critical for the world and our quality of life.
