AUSTRALIAN Mining invites editorial contributions and story ideas for its Contract Mining and Services feature in the September 2008 issue. The contract mining industry has grown to the point where many of the countries mines are using contractors to produce their ore and develop their site. This growth was driven by the need to drive poor industrial relations and work practices in sectors of the industry, along with the needs of many small mine owners to preserve their capital by using contractors to do their mining. This issue looks at the important trends in the contract mining industry and the directions it may take in the future.
To submit an article, propose a story idea, or send in details, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submitted images should be high-resolution and in jpg format.
The editorial deadline is Thursday 14 August 2008.
