Mining is one of three primary industries (along with farming and fishing) that is fundamental to growth in the world's developing economies. These industries are also critical to sustaining economies in more developed countries. After four years of declining metals prices, growth opportunities are beginning to emerge.
Dr. Chris Hinde of S&P Global Market Intelligence illustrates how our essential intelligence can help you identify and leverage recent trends in the mining sector to maximize potential opportunities.
On the agenda:
1. Quick overview of the global mining industry
2. The recent business environment (prices, company expenditure etc)
3. Current trends in exploration, mine development, industry investment and M&A.
