As miners seek to expand the rare earths sector, projects are popping up across the globe, now including Tanzania. We examine Australian miner Peak Resource’s project in the country, how it aims to become one of the world’s lowest-cost, fully integrated rare earth producers, and the challenges it may face.
Also in this issue, we dive into the internal politics of Rio Tinto amid the fight to hold decision makers accountable and speak to the organisers of a 105km bike ride that looks to highlight indigenous heritage and protest Adani's Carmichael coal mine.
Plus, we look at how Goldfields is rewarding its workforce in light of production increases, our writers identify policies they would enact to revolutionise the Australian mining sector, and we consider the local impacts of China and Australia's political spat as Queensland's coal exports hit a four-year low.
