In Tanzania, the government is establishing mineral trading hubs in an effort to cut down on illegal exportation and tax evasion. We take a look at mining in the country, and how this scheme will be rolled out.

In technology, we speak to Airobotics about their drones and how they can improve mine safety, explore whether batteries really are best for mining vehicles, and take a look at Russia’s first metallurgical accelerator, Severstal’s SteelTech Accelerator.

We also investigate how mining lobbies are changing and adapting as the mining industry itself does to become more environmentally aware, and catch up with Anglo American to see how they are implementing sustainability initiatives.
