As the mining industry booms, so do the number of disputes. To find out more about the risks and issues mining companies face, and to what extent external arbitration can be of help, we spoke to experts from law firm Faegre Baker Daniels. 

We also ask if there is middle ground to be found in the ASARCO copper mine strikes and profile Equatorial Guinea's new exploration agreements for six deposits.

Plus, we investigate the fraught world of mining insurance, hear from DeepGreen about their efforts in mining the ocean floor, and catch up with progress at the Thorny River project. 

Finally, we speak to NexTech AR Solutions and Romios Gold Resources about their partnership to develop 3D core samples in AR and assess whether Canada is turning away from mining.
