ABOUT US

 

VISION

Be the world’s top event in Mining Rescue activities with ability to reach a majority of the public with mining interest

MISSION

Achieve 100% successful rescue rates both in mining operations and in the communities supporting them by helping teams continuously improve their skills

OUR VALUES

Continuous upskilling

MERC believes that in an emergency situation you do not rise to the occasion but rather sink to the level of your training. This is why we continue to push the envelope on the level of emergency intervention preparedness of the teams through our courses and educational offerings.

Training through competition

MERC simulates the pressure of a real life emergency situation through competition, testing the ability of individuals and teams to perform against deadlines in well-structured, safe and consciously designed scenarios that foster collaboration and team work.

Prevention effectiveness

MERC adheres to the old sage that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure by developing and promoting safety techniques that help avoid an emergency altogether.

Community engagement

MERC believes that business and local communities are partners in keeping each other safe. As such we are helping to forge and strengthen mutually beneficial connections between resource sector companies and the communities in which they operate.
