Analyzing the Major Mines of the World
The mining industry has been key to the development of civilization, underpinning the iron and bronze ages, the industrial revolution and the infrastructure of today's information age. Downstream beneficiation and minerals processing of these raw materials adds further value as raw materials and products are created to serve all aspects of industry and commerce worldwide.
The last decade of the twentieth century saw the creation of mega-commodity corporations that increasingly moved downstream into the beneficiation area, leaving exploration for new mineral deposits increasingly to small junior mining companies. Application of new technology has led to productivity gains across the value chain.
Apart from Antarctica (which has a treaty in place preventing short to medium term exploitation and exploration of minerals), mining takes place in all of the world’s continents. Traditional mining countries such as the USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa and Chile dominate the global mining scene. These countries have become the traditional leaders in mining and exploration methods and technology. Exploration and development funding has changed over the past few years with emphasis shifting to areas that have been poorly explored or have had poor access for reasons of politics, infrastructure or legislation. Gold, base metal, diamonds and platinum group elements (PGE’s) are the more important commodities explored for and developed globally.
Aruvian’s R’search brings an entire in-depth coverage of over 100 major mines of the world in the research report Analyzing the Major Mines of the World. This extensive report covers comprehensive profiles of the mines profiled, which includes production data, location data, geographic data, and much more. Commodities such as copper, gold, iron, diamonds, platinum, and coal are amongst some of the mines profiled in the report. Since no mining report would be complete without an analysis of the global metals & mining industry, we also analyze the same in this report, along with the environmental legacy of the mining industry.
