The Changing Landscape of Mining

Following impressive injections of new capital by investors, mining companies now have to show they can convert investment projects into successful producing mines. A comprehensive analysis of AIM-listed mining companies by PricewaterhouseCoopers recently showed that the mining industry has delivered a substantial increase in investment, financed almost entirely through successful capital raisings. Understandably, these companies are fast-tracking new mining projects and seeking out new opportunities to take advantage of high commodity prices – and to do this most effectively, they need the right people, with the right skills, perspective and track record.
