Abstract

SINDING, K.. Consolidation, fragmentation and the structure of the mining industry. J. S. Afr. Inst. Min. Metall. [online]. 2009, vol.109, n.3, pp. 187-190. ISSN 2411-9717.

This paper discusses reasons for mining company mergers that have become the fashion, the role of the 'Juniors' and asks what the motives might really be. It examines changes in company concentration over the last 20 years in key mineral segments. Data at different stages of a project are examined to attempt to lucidate the role of the 'Juniors'. Areas for further research are suggested.
