Why The Business of Mining?
The web offers a lot of data and information. However, real insights are scarce. Many sites present news and general information on the mining industry, but very few sites manage to connect the dots and explain the drivers and implications of the news. That is exactly what The Business of Mining is trying to do. The objective is not to compete with news sites and information databases, but to complement these sites by offering the business insights into the mining industry. The Business of Mining is a non-commercial site.
