In this issue, we speak to three London-based and listed companies who, although very different otherwise, all chose to focus their mining activity in West Africa. Through in-depth interviews, we discover what attracted them to this diverse and often challenging region, and consider the significant economic and social impacts. African Minerals' Mike Jones gives his perspective on whether the private sector can be a force for sustainable good in developing economies.

Across the Atlantic Ocean, we look at the changing mining landscape of South America - particularly Colombia, a country promising much gold but also many challenges. We speak to the CEO of Canadian explorer Miranda Gold about his experience of operating in Colombia under the mining moratorium. He also gives an intriguingly positive perspective on the country's rampant illegal mining activity, which we look at in detail.

Continuing to the South Pacific, a company about to become Western Australia's first uranium producer and examine the case for a potential 'uranium renaissance' in the planet's changing energy landscape. Reflecting upon recent excitement over the futuristic concept of asteroid mining, we compare its value with that of recycling the resources here on earth.

All of that is in addition to our usual selection of features on enterprising resources explorers, developers, miners and service/equipment providers from all corners of the globe.
