BXR Mining Corporation
From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
The company had facilities in the following cities and locations:
Circa March 9, 2552, the Covenant attacked a BXR Mining Corporation facility on a human colony. A group of miners volunteered to extract a haul of exotic ore that would be used in the creation of the Spartan-IIs MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor. While they successfully retrieved and delivered the ore, the Covenant bombardment caused a cave-in that blocked their escape. Trapped, one of the miners began singing. The other miners joined in before the cave ultimately collapsed on top of them.
BXR had several facilities on the colony world of Reach. During the Covenant's invasion of Reach in August 2552, one of the corporation's mining facilities on the Szurdok Ridge at Ütközet was made into a stronghold by Covenant forces.
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.
