Viewpoint: Perspectives on Modern Mining is a magazine published for and about the mining industry by the Caterpillar Global Mining organization. The breadth of topics covered in Viewpoint is unmatched. The magazine showcases mine sites in action around the world — at depths of 2 286 meters (7,500 feet) in Canada, to altitudes of 4 300 meters (14,100 feet) in Peru.

Viewpoint searches the globe for interesting, relevant topics that are important to its audience — like best practices in haul road maintenance and contamination control, sustainability leadership in environmental efforts and community engagement, and new products and technologies that enhance productivity and improve safety.
