Meeting of the Mines – It’s AGM season at the moment for many of the mining companies MPI keeps an eye on. During October/November MPI will attend AGM’s for BHP, Toro, Paladin, Hanan’s Reward and Newcrest. Typically, AGM’s are a frustrating and increasingly choreographed event – more in keeping with a video promotion of the latest soft drink than an an important industry meeting. If you want help with an AGM, or want add more companies to our AGM list, or are prepared to provide proxies for MPI to attend AGM’s then please contact us.
Water Not Gold – MPI is part of an Australian coalition supporting the tour of Vidalina Morales, an environment and mining activist from El Salvador. Vidalina is knowledgeable and inspirational, providing a rare insight into the activities of transnational mining companies in the developing world. You still have a chance to hear her if you are in Perth, Canberra or Brisbane. Perth’s event is Politics in the Pub this Monday 18th November starting 6pm – more details at http://www.waternotgold.info/ or event page.
Mining News – We try and keep the Mining Monitor short to give our members and supporters a snippet of mining news from around the world, but it is only the tip of the iceburg. If you want a more regular fix then tune in to our facebook page or on twitter.
MPI – As a small, Australian and internationally focused CSO we rely on and need your support to keep an eye on mining. Please consider becoming becoming a monthly donor or volunteer your time, we currently need help with research and graphic design
