Investment Opportunities In Artisanal And Small-Scale Mining Operations

In this Mining Coffee Chat discussion, AMI Natural Resources Practice Leader Remi Piet is joined by Daniel Stapper and Nitin Vaswani from Pact – Mines to Market, an organization which brings together government, industry and artisanal miners themselves to make artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) formal, safer and more productive.

The discussion in this Coffee Chat is focused on the developing importance of ASM mining in global mineral production, examine best case practices in formalization processes and highlight opportunities for investors and mining companies at a time of rising demands for transparency in mineral supply chains.
