Brexit will bring with it the potential to set up new trade deals for the import and possibly export of raw materials but it could also provide the opportunity to shore up the local supply chain, especially when it comes to metals like lithium, which are so critical to meeting the governments electric car ambitions. We take a broad look around the industry to understand how the UK mining industry feels about Brexit.
Also in this issue, we talk to Ferrexpo about how automation is changing mining, dive into the state of the diamond market, and hear from the New York Declaration on Forests Assessment Partners about mining's damage to tropical forests.
Plus, we scour the globe for the best and brightest in automation of drill and blast projects, investigate whether smart mining will require a cultural shift, ask how new laws will affect Indian mining, and examine new uses for old mine shafts.
