"Mining Investors" resource available

Understanding the legal structure of a mining company and identifying its management, shareholders and relationship with the financial markets

Communities dealing with the impact from mining activities (whether at the claim-staking, exploration, development, operating, closure, or restoration/rehabilitation stage) find themselves confronted by a legal entity they may not understand, making demands that are contrary to the desires of the community, and giving reason for its behaviour that they do not know how to counteract.

This Resource is an attempt to understand the nature of this legal entity – what drives it and maintains it, where its strengths and vulnerabilities lie – and to provide some tools to persuade the entity to act in a manner that sees the best interests of the community as part of its self-interest.
