Mining has been practised since the bronze age. Mining companies, however, are a much more recent addition. This book presents an international perspective of mining and metallurgy, covering areas from the history of mines and mining companies and in the trading of mining shares. It not only covers the geological aspects of mining (vital to any investor with little technical knowledge) but also discusses the many problems that can be encountered when attempting to value a mining company such as those associated with reserves, metal prices, forecasting and extraction costs. It also provides invaluable information regarding the financial aspects of mining discussing the accounting practices and taxation of mining companies.
