This month we hear from Jon Hill at Jaguar Mining on the state of play of the industry in Brazil. As the mining world comes to terms with the tailings dam tragedy at Brumadinho, and following a decade of stagnation, will the change of government, combined with the recently launched National Mining Agency and a rush for copper, help overcome recent setbacks and kickstart a boom?
We spoke with Stephen de Jong, Founder & CEO at VRify, and discovered how the mining sector can up its presentation game in the bid for investment with interactive 360-degree walkthroughs of mining sites and exploration opportunities.
Also in this issue, Good well Mateyo, the President of Zambia’s Chamber of Mines, tells Mining Global why it’s vital his country’s government deliver concessions on tax increases to boost investment in the sector.
With demand for copper as well as other tech metals on the rise, we bring you the low down on the latest trends in the battery metals market from TechMet CEO Brian Menell, who offers his predictions for the future production of tech commodities.
For this month’s Top 10, we’ve also analysed the annual Tracking the Trends report from Deloitte highlighting areas of innovation transforming the future of mining.
