The Week in Mining focuses on the rise in gold prices caused by an uncertain global growth outlook, tensions between the US and other countries and a potential Fed rate cut. Copper prices are also climbing, mainly due to expectations regarding China’s new infrastructure plans and a labor strike at the world’s largest copper mine.  In Mexico, protesters at Peñasquito have agreed to lift their two-month blockade of the mine and start formal negotiations with the government. Also, deep-sea mining is delving ever deeper, as a Swiss company invests in a promising Canadian startup.


Finally, do not miss this week’s Interview of the Week with Alejandro Espejel, country manager of FLSmidth, where we discuss the main challenges operators are facing in terms of mineral scarcity and falling grades.
