July 2020

Gold is traditionally viewed as a safe haven for investors in times of economic turmoil and it is no different during Covid-19. So has there been a knock on for miners? We look at the near future outlook for gold mining.

We also investigate the case against a Canadian miner being sued for violations of international law, assess whether Covid-19 could kick-start a new revolution in digital mining, and see how the Trans-Tasman court case could impact future offshore mining projects in New Zealand. 

We also look at how the industry has rallied to help during Coid-19, speak to Speedcast about 'connected mines', hear from Mineworx about the post-market recovery of PGMs, and consider Wärtsilä's plans in Saudi Arabia.
