Exploration and mining continue to attract the interest of investors who seek the balance between calculated risk and estimated reward. The valuation of mining companies and their projects will continue, despite fluctuating commodity prices and global variability.
The changing “minescape” implies that the way companies and their projects were valuated in the past will not suffice for the intricacies of the future.
