View this page in: Русский, Українська

After a slow and cautious 2012, mining M&A activity is expected to continue at a moderate and equally cautious pace in 2013 as metal prices stabilise and companies bet on a continued rise in commodity demand from countries such as China, according to the latest Mining Deals report by PwC.

It is also expected that this year, mega-mergers will be placed on the shelf while mining companies seek to prove that they are being prudent with shareholder dollars and are able to realise positive results on significant acquisitions made in the past few years.
