Many investors have exited from the mining industry and departed almost completely from higher risk exploration.”

To succeed, companies will need to transition from a purely profit driven to a benefit driven model in order to address the significant rise in demands from social activism, as well as increasing government conditions in order to restore confidence in the investment community. The worldwide recognized, tools, practices and operating procedures developed and being implemented by the Canadian exploration and mining industry, provide an excellent platform for success.”
