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 take a look at Airobotics’s drones and how they can improve mine safety. As well as looking at whether batteries really are best for mining vehicles, and Russia’s first metallurgical accelerator, Severstal’s SteelTech Accelerator.

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