Alba Mineral Resources has bought a stake in the storied Clogau Gold Mine complex in Wales, aiming to restart gold mining operations by the end of the year. We sit down with the company to hear more about the prospects for a Welsh gold renaissance in the years to come.

Also in the next issue, we find out whether a recent move from Peru’s President to open the country’s reserves of lithium could unlock the ‘lithium triangle’ in South America, investigate a new study that has shown how big data can predict where to find new mineral deposits, and delve deeper into Resolute Mining’s Syama mine in Mali, which is expected to become the world’s first fully automated mine.

Plus, we find out more about the benefits of integrating battery chemical production into a mine site’s refining operations, and speak to Asteroid Mining Corporation about the possibility of mining the tens of thousands of asteroids that orbit Earth.
