Today the first of four articles, I am co-authoring with Allan Trench, was released in his Strictly Boardroom column on The four articles will present four different scenarios for the mining industry in 2040. The first of these articles is entitled “An industry under siege” and sees an industry battling with profitability and struggling to justify its long term future. Sound familiar?

The article can be found on (for subscribers only). A presentation about all of the scenarios is also available on the Centre for Exploration Targeting website.
