Mining provides the building blocks for human development. The supply of metal and mineral products has underpinned human endeavour through millennia and will continue to play its role in meeting society’s needs. The need will remain strong, so satisfying demand requires finding and developing new mines, even as resource use becomes more efficient and recycling systems ramp up. Fortunately the geological supply of metals within the Earth remains robust and new technologies will help bring new deposits on stream. But these will increasingly be located in more remote regions, raising production and investment costs.
