Consolidation, fragmentation and the structure of the mining industry



K. Sinding

University of Dundee, Scotland and University of Southern Denmark




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.
