Top 2018 Industrial Mining & Precious Metal Website Designs

March 3, 2018 | Jon Teodoro

Here we go with another round of our Top 2015 Website Designs. This edition is specifically focused on the mining and precious metal industry.

As it turns out, only a handful of companies in this industry are investing the time into making sure their online presence looks up-to-date. These companies collectively specialize in mining precious metals from the Earth or supply materials and equipment to make these things happen. If it wasn’t for these mining giants, we wouldn’t have coins, jewelry, certain food additives, or even alternative sources of energy. One of the companies on this list specializes in mining from asteroids (what?!).

  1. Compass Minerals
  2. What we like about it: Bold color scheme and excellent use of ‘organic’ imagery to convey the statement of their “responsible transformation of the Earth’s natural resources”.

  4. What we like about it: Big, full screen picture with cycling images to represent each icon. Clean navigation across the top and bottom.


  5. Martin Marietta
  6. What we like about it: Clear call to action above the fold to drive visitors to a product calculator along with a nicely designed sidebar navigation and cool “boxed” layout.
