Mining financing by region, January 2013-March 2015
by Chris Galbraith

The past several years have unquestionably been particularly challenging for the mining industry. Nevertheless, in spite of hardships, the mining industry continues to attract new funding. Evaluating financings by the destinations of capital raised shows that the regional distribution is hardly static and that some clear trends can be identified in the geographical distribution of funds from January 2013 through early 2015. While the 2013-2014 periods have been relatively consistent in total funds raised for mining and exploration, 2015 has so far been off to a troubled start.

A Musing on the Seasonality of Gold
by Mickey Fulp the Mercenary Geologist
The usual suspects in the gold bug and perma-bull camps got their panties all wet last week when the yellow metal briefly set a four-month high of $1184 per ounce.
