LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM – George Media Inc. is pleased to announce the March issue of The International Resource Journal is now available online at www.internationalresourcejournal.com/E-MAG/2013/Mar/IRJ.php.
Taking Rio Tinto’s $3 billion write-down on its Mozambique coal assets as a starting point, this edition looks at the challenges of operating in Mozambique, but also at the country’s great economic potential. In our cover story, the Maputo Corridor Logistics Initiative lays out the problems holding back development along the vital transport corridor connecting South Africa to Mozambique and explains how it is lobbying for improvement and striving to encourage investment. Two of our columnists then explore Mozambique further, examining the country’s risks and rewards.
Our coverage of the African Mining Indaba 2013 expands our focus from Mozambique to the whole of Africa as a target for investment. We speak to Jonathan Moore, the man behind this world-renowned event, and highlight excerpts from the event’s opening keynote speech, given by South Africa minister of minerals Susan Shabangu.
Returning to Rio Tinto, we review what has been an eventful year for the company and, in the wake of chief executive Tom Albanese’s exit, our columnist asks why four of the world’s largest mining companies are changing their senior management now.
All of that is in addition to our usual selection of features on enterprising resources explorers, miners, investors and service providers from all corners of the globe.
