Intelligence Series Mining & Metals

BNamericas' August edition of the Mining & Metals report titled "Junior Mining: Light in the Tunnel or Another False Start?".

Metal commodity prices have increased significantly over the last 18 months but are still far short of the highs enjoyed at the height of the commodities boom, and while junior financing and exploration activity have seen marked improvements, the mood remains sober as companies wait for stronger signs of a market comeback. Latin America remains the global region receiving the most exploration investment, and while the more established jurisdictions, such as Chile and Peru, are the favorites, political changes have reduced the perceived risk and could spur exploration in Argentina and Ecuador.
