So I recently got into a mining engineering program in a university in Canada. To me it seemed like a great idea as the new mining ethic is to plan for safe, environmental friendly mines, and focus on sustainability and closure plans before starting the mine.
But it seems like a lot of people are opposed to mining, and someone told me that the Catholic Church is opposed to mining.
I don’t want to be in this profession if it’s against our beliefs, but I can’t really see where it would be. Of course there is the issue of human rights in some places, but I would definitely be against that.
