Changing Landscape in the Mining Industry – How to manage the Business and Projects in Uncertain Times
The global mining industry is facing a challenging situation today, saddled with lower demand, lower commodity prices, and increased business and geopolitical risks. Over the last ten years, many mining projects were not completed on time and on budget due to a variety of factors.
After the Fukushima incident, the uranium industry, in particular, has been hit hard, with persistent oversupply and very low uranium prices, despite the aggressive building of new capacity in China and other parts of the world, and a brighter long-term outlook. Specific topics to be covered:
