May Issue of the International Resource Journal Now Online

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - April 24, 2013) - George Media Inc. is pleased to announce that the May issue of The International Resource Journal is now available online at Click on the magazine cover to enter the publication.

This issue focuses particularly on iron ore and coal mining in Australia, with our cover story bringing the profits tax on these activities sharply into focus. As the Coalition steps up its election campaign to replace Labor as the country's federal government in September, we talk exclusively to Mathias Cormann, Liberal Party Senator for Western Australia about Labor's controversial Minerals Resource Rent Tax (MRRT).

Continuing our focus on the MRRT's target industries, columnist Ian Thomson explores the controversy-rich history of coal mining in Australia, while Mick Humphreys examines the exodus of Australian miners to projects in Africa. Wilfred Visser, meanwhile, investigates into why so many mining companies are choosing to sell assets now.

The magazine's focus is rounded off by two companies working within the iron ore and coal mining industries: Goodline, a provider of construction and engineering services to BHP and FMG; and WPG Resources, a South Australian iron ore explorer who's piecing together a neatly integrated mining and power project.

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