Minerals and metal play an essential role in the technology we use every day. Smartphones and electronic payment machines rely on mined materials like nickel, zinc, gold and cobalt, to function. In today’s society, where efficiency and convenience are prioritized, innovation in the tech we use has influenced almost every aspect of our lives, including the way we do our banking.
Electronic payments, for everything from the groceries we need to the coffee we buy every morning, are increasingly becoming the preferred way to manage our finances. Easy and convenient, mobile payments are quickly making your heavy wallet obsolete. Canada’s mining industry provides the sustainably sourced materials necessary to create the technology that allows you to easily and safely pay for all your life’s necessities with just the tap of your phone.
