The good news is that many people have made a lot of money investing in mining projects. The bad news is that many have lost money, or had to wait many years for a fair return on invested capital. The basic reason is that mining is a risky business. To help you invest in mining so that you make money by avoiding the risk, this course describes the various phases of a mining project so that you can understand and evaluate the risk of investing; discusses technical, social, political, and financial factors that make one mining investment better or worse than another; and focuses on stories that highlight the risks and rewards.
Prior to the course, registered delegates have access to the online e-learning material consisting of an introductory course titled An Introduction to Mining Investment - Understanding the Risks.
