Next issue: July 2020

The Covid-19 outbreak has brought huge restrictions for fly-in/fly-out workers, who make up a large proportion of the Australian mining workforce. We ask, how has Covid-19 disrupted Australian mining's flow, and could the crisis prompt a rethink about this way of working?

We also look at whether iron ore will hold up under the uncertainty of the coming months, explore the long-term future of Tasmania's mining sector, and examine Australian operations in Africa. 

Finally, we map out autonomous and remote-control projects in Australian mining, chart the effect of Covid-19 on the country's mining sector as it happened, investigate the future of rare earths in Australia, and speak to Australian Mines about its drive towards carbon neutrality.
