In June, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the auction of 41 coal mines opening India’s vast deposits to the commercial sector for the first time. We look at India’s sweeping plans and ask: can they be squared with the country’s climate change commitments?

We also look at claims around the Canada-US integrated supply chain for critical minerals, investigate how Covid-19 disrupted nickel's great recovery, and learn how flooded mines are being used to heat homes in the UK.

We also explore how hydrogen-powered vehicles could be the future of mining machinery, speak to IBM and Shell about their global B2B digital mining services marketplace, sit down with Axora to talk smart tech in the mining sector, and take a visual tour of the US Geological Survey's seafloor mining research.
