The Mining Journal Project Pipeline Handbook presents the methodology behind the database of development projects, along with a cross-section of assets from within our growing universe of coverage.
The database is the result of direct investor demand following our inaugural Mining Journal Select conference in 2018, which sought to critically assess mature, pre-production investment opportunities and present only those of adequate quality. That selection process was time intensive and subjective so we have now formalised the procedure to be streamlined and scientific.
The broader concept recognises the difficulty investors face in sifting through the plus-2,000 listed resources equities to identify the few worth greater investigation. What makes this challenge more acute is the varied ways in which companies report key metrics.
Here, for each asset, we present 24 metrics central to investment decisions, normalised by unit and currency. Metrics are baked into our ratings formula that, while still in its raw form, has been built around industry consultation.
Mining Journal Research and Intelligence delivers annual standalone reports that expand upon the most relevant discussion points in the mining sector.
