    Glencore takes offer to Teck shareholders

    Shane Lasley, Mining News|Updated Apr 27, 2023

    Glencore says it is willing to cut a deal directly with shareholders if a planned split of Teck's metal, coal assets is stopped.

    The biggest Canadian gold hoax of all time

    A.J. Roan, Mining News|Updated Jan 5, 2023

    Start with the biggest deposit of gold ever reported, add in a dash of remote, inaccessible jungles of Indonesia, and let simmer for almost a decade, and you have a recipe for the largest mining-related scandal in modern history, resulting in the system of standardization regarding mineral reporting for the last twenty years and ideally for many more years to come. It is easy to forget that the systems by which mining companies in Canada report and display information... Full story

    Copper's vital role in low-carbon economy

    Nolan Peterson, World Copper|Updated Mar 4, 2022

    When most people think about the metals driving the alternative energy revolution, lithium, vanadium, cobalt and rare earths spring to mind. As recently reported by EE Times Europe, "Copper is an important raw material for the electronics industry, being the most widely used conductor for PCB, wiring, and connector manufacturing. The average person, however, might not realize this, thinking that copper is some kind of old metal on which there is no progress to be made." There... Full story

    Majors quietly move into eastern Alaska

    Shane Lasley, Mining News|Updated Sep 25, 2020

    While claim staking and mineral exploration has rocketed in Yukon's famed White Gold and Klondike districts, this prolific action nearly comes to a halt at the territory's western border with Alaska. This has given rise to a tongue-in-cheek theory that there must be a major fault separating the mineral rich lands in western Yukon from the barren lands west of the border. This "Border Fault" apparently does exist. It is not, however, a major geological structure separating... Full story

    The United States is richly endowed with a broad range of metals and minerals critical to national security, green energy and modern technology but is often overly-reliant on foreign sources for these same commodities. This was the resounding message from miners, manufacturers, regulators and analysts who testified on U.S. Senate Bill 883, "The American Mineral Security Act of 2015." Introduced by Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, S.883 aims to reduce the United States' heavy...
