Welcome to Mine Magazine.

In this edition of Mine Magazine, we take a look at how Saudi Arabia hopes to create both supply and demand in its own mining industry. The resource-rich nation hopes to move toward green technology, and hopes that it can attract foreign direct investment to its nascent mines.

Also, we take a look at copper mining in Argentina, the window of opportunity for critical minerals, and weighing the natural beauty of a home against a critical mineral before it becomes “just another commodity”.

Alongside this, we crunch some numbers on the leaders in critical minerals, while also zooming in on lithium in a piece provided by parent company GlobalData.

All this in your edition of Mine Magazine.
