Royalty financing usually involves a funder making an upfront payment to a mining company – for developing a project, covering costs or building up working capital – in return for regular royalty payments (which might be in the form of cash or the mined commodity). How has this alternative funding model fared in 2020? We discuss the matter with Anglo Pacific Group.

Also in this issue, we investigate new research that could make rare earth elements more discoverable, speak to the company overseeing the world's highest-grade ilmenite deposit, and ask what the results of the US election mean for mining.

Plus, we examine Spain's proposed ban on uranium mining, catch up with CEO of Gemini GIS Services Andiswa Silinga on the importance of geospatial data, explore the impact of Covid-19 on artisanal miners, and consider the mineral potential of the Caribbean.
