SA stands its ground in latest mining rankings

SA’s mining industry stayed steady in the eyes of investors, with a slight slip in the way policies are perceived, according to the latest data from the Fraser Institute.

Canada-based Fraser Institute has released its annual survey of mining companies conducted at the end of 2019. The survey was based on 263 full and partial responses to 2,400 questionnaires sent to mining and exploration companies.

The 73 jurisdictions included in the latest survey include Canadian provinces, US and Australian states, and a handful of countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and South America. This is the smallest number of jurisdictions yet in the survey and  is down from 83 measured in 2018, showing a steady decline from 122 jurisdictions in 2014.
