Keeping up with the price of gold
Throughout 2011, we have been discussing how "the game has changed" in the minng industry. Volatility in the equity markets, high production costs, the labour crunch and increased government involvement for example, have changed the game for the global mining industry.
This theme reigns true for gold mining companies. Gold experienced an incredible year in 2011, and according to the mining executives that were surveyed, they expect the price of gold to continue to rise well into 2012.
