Mineral Exploration in Australia Industry Market Research Report Now Updated by IBISWorld

Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) January 12, 2014

Mineral exploration is aimed at discovering ore bodies that can subsequently be mined. The industry aims to identify a pipeline of economically proven resources for the future development, production and export of mineral resources. IBISWorld industry analyst Caroline Finch states, Activity within the industry is often taken as a lead indicator for mineral output and the industry's performance moves ahead of the wider Mining division. Over the past five years, the Mineral Exploration industry has grown at a compound annual rate of 8.5% as exploration works have been undertaken to support new mining developments. Higher commodity prices have also spurred on exploration activity. This has increased the rewards that industry participants stand to gain from mineral exploration, which is an inherently risky activity. The industry is expected to spend $ 3.7 billion on exploration in 2013-14, compared with $ 2.4 billion in 2008-09. In the past two years, the operating environment for the industry has started to shift.

According to Finch, The increasing global mineral output, combined with a slowing Chinese economy, has suppressed world prices for the major commodity groups that the industry explores for. Due to the declining trend in commodity prices, and the peaking of investment in the domestic Mining division, exploration spending is expected to fall by 5.2% in 2013-14, following on from a drop in 2012-13. This decline comes largely in response to generally lower mineral prices, especially in the early part of the year. Due to this fall, some industry operators will shift their focus from exploration to production.

Commodity prices are expected to continue to moderate in the next five years. With less incentive to carry out exploration, funding streams for the industry are anticipated to dry up. For established miners, lower commodity prices will put pressure on the profitability of their main operations, and will reduce the rewards from successful exploration. Established miners are expected to curtail exploration budgets in Australia over the next five years. Junior miners rely on positive business sentiment to access equity to fund exploration, and this too depends on higher commodity prices. As they struggle to access cash, their presence is also expected to decrease.

Market share concentration in the Mineral Exploration industry is relatively low. The low concentration reflects the entities involved in exploration. Almost all miners with established operations undertake exploration, heavily weighted towards brownfield exploration near existing sites. At the other end of the spectrum, numerous so-called 'junior miners' are active in the industry. They are more likely to have taken out a minerals exploration licence for a greenfield site. In general, smaller operators have less diversity across the minerals they prospect for, as they are typically more specialised operators.

A Year in the Life of Dow Jones

When the Dow plunged yesterday I was flipping through cable news and couldn’t find anyone, anywhere who would contextualize what the numbers meant.

Yes, 630 plus points (or about 5.5%) were lost from the day before but how did that compare to the year? For that matter, where were we last August?

Enter data gleaned from Wolfram|Alpha. Above is the monthly low, mean and high of the Dow Jones Industrial Average from August 2010 to yesterday.

For those wondering, here’s a flashback of past August lows:

- August 2011: 10810
- August 2010: 9986
- August 2009: 9135
- August 2008: 11284
- August 2007: 12846
- August 2006: 11076
- August 2005: 10397

Now watch as we jump back in time a bit:

- August 1995: 4581
- August 1985: 1313
- August 1975: 791
- August 1925: 125

And all that because the cable wouldn’t tell me that one little thing I wanted to know.

China’s Economy in Transition: From External to Internal Rebalancing

China's Economy in Transition: From External to Internal Rebalancing

China's Economy in Transition: From External to Internal Rebalancing

China’s current account surplus has declined to around one-quarter the peak reached before the global financial crisis. While this is a major reduction in China’s external imbalance, it has not been accompanied by a decisive shift toward consumption-based growth. Instead, the compression in its external surplus has been accomplished through increasing fixed investment so that it is now an even higher share of China’s national economy. This increasing reliance on fixed investment as the mai


Currency Trading Training

Currency Trading Training

Currency trading is fast becoming the online preference for earning money from home. The truth of the matter is that it is not as easy as some of these online programs like to make out. It is important to get some decent training and in some cases experience with a demo account before you trade with real money.

There are three ways you can get currency trading training; teach yourself through free online websites and forums, get professional training from an experienced trader or join a currency trading club. The free online method can be a good way to start but you have to be sure that the information you are getting is of good quality the only problem is if you have no experience how are you going to know its quality.

To be taught by a currency trading professional is the ultimate; make sure you see proof of their trading history and success before you pay them any monies. One on one currency trading training with a professional trader is likely to be very expensive be sure it is what you really want and that it will fit in your budget.

The best currency trading training around is forex trading clubs. These clubs have the benefit of being run by a professional trader but the cost is shared amongst its members. Again make sure you do some research on the club that you intent to join and insist on seeing some results.

The best thing about a currency trading club is that you can watch and copy a professional as he/she trades live over a webinar. Even with little or no experience you can still profit from the professionals experience and decisions that they make. Be sure to choose a club that also offers out of trading hours support and training so you can learn the methods they use to profit.

Adam has been trading forex for 5 years and until recently with little success. Adam recently joined Colin Atkin's private members club and has since seen his profit margin quadruple in the past two years. Colin is a professional trader who shares his trading live, over a webinar three times a day 5 days a week, all you have do is copy what he does and take the profits. Since Adam joined Colin he has had the money to invest in other projects and gone on to be a successful full time forex trader and internet marketer.
