Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

To ensure a mining project will be successful, considerable capital investment is required and demonstrated reserves must exceed capacity and output. For every dollar spent on labor (including wages, management and administration and R&D expenses), about $0.6 are invested in capital.

It is costly for enterprises to manage primary risks. Risks may arise from mining (e.g. accidents), geology (e.g. incorrect surveys that showed higher reserves than available), pipeline safety, natural disasters (e.g. earthquakes) and others.

The investment return period of the industry is long. High levels of capital are required for exploration, to build capacity, and purchase equipment. Wit..
