Focusing on cost-effective solutions.

Mining Technologies International continues to expand their horizons, introducing innovative products while, still maintaining a focus on a commitment to meet the customer's needs through all stages of development.

Mining Technologies International (MTI), a Lively, Ont.-based company, is a major Canadian manufacturer and supplier of quality consumable and capital equipment for the domestic and international mining community. The company services mining operations from branch offices in: Bathurst, N.B., Montreal and Val d'Or, Que., Thompson, Man.; Edmonton, Alta., Denver, Colo. and Elko, Nev.
