Mining sector urged to become less risk-averse

Chris Hinde, chief commentator for Mines and Money, discusses with Proactive London his views on how best to address the future gap between future supply and demand.

''What's changed in the last couple of years, we're not quite sure why but probably the political scene, people have become much more risk-averse''.

''The exploration and mining sector generally is pretty hard to evaluate ... but essentially risk investment has gone away'', Hinde says.

''These guys who are exploring can't go the bank and get debt capital it's all equity capital ...  so you're asking investors to stump up for shares in tiny companies on the off chance they find something''
