Welcome to the imaginary world of Xploriks Mining Ltd!
This is a test project that I have been working on for several years. My Mission: push the boundaries of JQuery UI to function like a Flash website.
Originally built in 2007, I designed this website in Flash to practice animation. However, as Flash(.swf) files have become less desirable to be used by browsers, I began to wonder what could be accomplished with CSS and JQuery UI?
This is the result of my experiments. It looks best in the most recent browsers.

The Xploriks Manifesto
Xploriks Mining Limited.is a mining company that is committed to meeting goals, keeping high standards and protecting the environment during and after any mining operation. Sure,cost and deadlines are important, but isn't a healthy future even more vital? The following buttons explain how our four principles benefit us, but most importantly,you as well.
Since 1989 our Uranium has been mined and refined in the Cigar Valley,Saskatchewan. Uranium is a low radioactive element,however when mining, radiation levels of Radon gas can be emitted. How we dispose, protect from this gas, and protect those living and working around the mine is a priority.
Protection to the mine worker on site is critical; safety first plays a role in all our jobs. Workers are trained in how to deal with hazardous chemicals and dangerous situations. Accidents can happen,but being prepared minimizes the risk. Not only our training,but the equipment we use is kept up to date and maintained as well.
Xploriks is committed to protecting the environment and some of the ways it does this is in the choices of chemicals and the methods it uses in the extraction process. Heavy Metals such as Mercury or Lead can seep into underground water systems and into the ground and pollute the natural surroundings.
Xploriks works with laboratories to find chemicals that put less stress on the environment and ways to safely dispose of higher risk waste materials.
Whether entering or leaving a site, Xploriks works to keep the land in a natural state,and then returns the land back to its pristine condition. Using digital photography we photograph the area first. We cut down the minimum number of trees necessary to clear the site. Once the mine has completed its lifecycle,our work does not end.In the case of open pit mining the site is filled in, replanted and gradually returned back to its original state. In the case of the underground mine, it is sealed but is monitored every few months over a duration of several years for gas leaks and structural changes.
