"Komatsu" on Raw to Ready airs Wednesday, October 16th at 9 pm

To extract precious metals found beneath the earth requires a massive 232-ton, two-story-tall dump truck with a load capacity of 320 tons — a giant earth-mover like the Komatsu 930-E. This amazing engineering achievement is made possible by five essential raw ingredients: coal, chromium, mineral oil, latex rubber and sulphuric acid, an electron superhighway that generates massive power.

Raw to Ready, Pt. 1 "Komatsu" airs on Wednesday, October 16th at 9:00 p.m. on channels 3 and 3-1.
