Modern Mining May 2022 cover

Editor’s take: “The party’s over for soaring commodity prices, and the descent of most commodities prices is imminent,” says Peter Major, director at Mergence Corporate Solutions. This news comes just as we are beginning to get comfortable with surging commodity prices and, if his prediction proves to be correct, it is sad news for all of us, miners, suppliers to the industry, and government coffers.

Modern Mining February 2022

Editor’s take: The Russia-Ukraine war sees yet another power struggle playing out, the energy power struggle which, if the pundits are to be believed, will see South Africans parting with as much as R40 per litre for fuel in the not-too-distant future.  But the good news is that energy metal producers are raking in the big bucks.

Modern Mining January 2022

Editor’s take: In this issue, we cast the spotlight on some top mining projects. Traditionally, we have always selected our Top Mining Projects based on size, high quality nature of the assets and innovation of teams on the ground. However, this year we have gone a step further by focusing on other important metrics such as environmental, social and governance (ESG), as well as local procurement and safety.

Modern Mining December 2021 coverEditor’s take: While the COVID-19 pandemic has had a range of impacts on mining companies, the one thing the past year has taught industry is the value of building resilience to navigate uncertain futures. In what PwC terms a year of doom and gloom on so many fronts in its SA Mine 2021 report, the mining sector however delivered a sterling performance with value delivered to all stakeholders.

As supply and demand jostled to find their way back to pre-pandemic levels, demand and prices were the outright winners. With record rand prices for gold, the platinum group metals basket, iron ore and more recently, coal, it was no surprise that the industry’s financial performance exceeded expectations on most fronts.
