There are signs in the market and in the mining industry that the worst of things are behind us, but are they really?
The second annual Current Trends in Mining Finance Conference will attempt to answer if the worst is over and if there really are brighter days ahead when the conference kicks off April 27 at the City University of New York Graduate Center in New York, NY.
This two-day conference, intended for senior executives and mining industry specialists, will cover a range of important topics and trends.
This year, a short course, “Mining project finance” will be offered on Sunday, April 27. This day-long course will be presented by Richard Tinsley, international advisory banker, engineer and economist with 35 years of experience.
