BXR Mining Corporation is a human mining corporation.[1]

History[edit]

BXR had several facilities on the colony world of Reach.[2] During the Covenant invasion of Reach, one of the corporation's mining facilities on the Szurdok Ridge at Ütközet was made into a stronghold by Covenant forces.

In 2556, BXR was under "active investigation" by ONI after the Sedra terrorist attack.[3]

After the Human-Covenant War, BXR was actively involved in mining silicate glass from former colonies destroyed by the Covenant, including Site #1774 on Bliss, which was visited by Benjamin Giraud.[4]

Facilities[edit]

The company had facilities in the following cities and locations:

Trivia[edit]

  • The abbreviation is a reference to the button combination which could be used to ensure an instant kill in Halo 2.
  • Some civilians in New Alexandria wear shirts that bear the BXR logo.
  • One variation of the BXR logo is that of three colored squares, a blue square on the left, a yellow square on top, and a red square to the right, representing the X, Y, and B buttons, respectively, on a standard Xbox 360 control pad, another obvious reference to the button combination.
  • The shape of the logo seems to be a reference to the chemical safety sign (NFPA 704) that is seen on containers of hazardous materials, as it is a group of four side-ways squares inside another, larger square, the exception being that the BXR logo only has three small squares in a larger one.
