North American Market Coverage Criteria|
The Metals & Minerals Industry encompasses the extraction (mining), as well as primary and secondary processing, of metals and minerals. There are 21 major categories within the Metals & Minerals Industry, including mines (coal, metal and mineral), steel mills, cement manufacturing plants, smelters, foundries, glass manufacturing plants and brick and tile plants, to name a few. Industrial Info's Metals & Minerals coverage includes a database of global project information representing more than $467 billion in total investment value.
Due to the large population of Metals & Minerals Industry operations, our plant database qualification guideline is typically restricted to companies with annual revenues of at least $25 million and/or plant operations of 50 or more employees. In North America, Industrial Info is monitoring a database of more than 5,200 operational plants in the Metals & Minerals Industry, in addition to more than 1,400 pre-commissioned (planning, engineering and under construction) plants. Outside of North America, Industrial Info is monitoring more than 8,600 operational and pre-commissioned plants in the Metals & Minerals Industry.

| ||Project Count||TIV||Total Contacts|
Over 8,800 Metals & Minerals Plants and Mines are represented in our North American database. Detailed information is available on 5,286 operational sites with 1,404 new plant locations under development and 2,151 decommissioned sites. Plant details include key management contacts which currently represent over 46,000 unique plant/corporate contacts. Each plant record is continuously phone verified for quality assurance and accuracy throughout the year.
|Each Plant Profile Identifies:|
- Company ownership and parent company
- Physical and mailing addresses,
- Phone and fax numbers,
- SIC descriptions,
- Start-up Date
- Union Status
- Fuel Type
- Key Management Contacts with Email addresses*
|Sample Plant Report|
|U.S. Coverage||CA/MX Coverage|
Each plant record includes up to 8 functional management contacts. Most contacts are identified on-site; however, we also provide corporate contacts in management positions if a particular responsibility is handled off-site. Corporate contacts are identified as “Off-Site,” whereas plant management contacts are marked with an “On-Site” status.
