quotemark1Men and women who mine the materials that make our modern lives comfortable and productive, do their work in environments that must be made as safe and healthy as possible. The Alpha Foundation vision is to support research that develops state-of-the-art scientific knowledge to achieve this end.  We must leverage the creative energy of scientists everywhere to discover previously hidden risks, to determine the extent of known risks and to develop effective preventive solutions so that our miners can also lead comfortable, healthy and productive lives.”
