It portrays how over the last 150 years mining has made Australia rich, yet created an unending struggle over who shares in the wealth. It reveals how mining helped forge democracy yet has repeatedly plotted to influence politics and even overthrow democratically elected leaders. Whilst mining has also been deeply damaging to Aboriginal society, ironically in the 21st century, it may be aboriginal people's best hope of economic self-determination.

🇦🇺 Australia's boomtown curse | 101 East
Australia is blessed with rugged beauty and a wealth of natural resources - including coal, iron, natural gas and gold. Such minerals are powering Australia's economy to record highs. And as demand from China for more resources grows, new mines continue to open across the country. But critics say there is a dark side to this success story. Mining regions attract transient workers keen to make a quick buck, creating social and environmental problems and a rising crime rate. Mines are also draining Australia's pool of skilled labour from other industries and driving up wages. 101 East asks: What is the cost of Australia's mining boom? Here Australian 101 East fixer Sian Gard takes us behind the scenes of the 12-day film shoot with reporter-producer Chan Tau Chou and cameraman Lee Ali. When you travel what is the worst thing that could happen? Some might say missing a flight, others might say you get crammed into the centre seat on a full flight. But when you are part of a film crew, one of the more difficult challenges is travelling with 181 kilogrammes of camera equipment. When an international film crew from Al Jazeera English calls you and says they want to come to Australia and film a story about the mining industry in two weeks time, the first thing you say is "I would love to be a part of this incredible story". The second thing you do? Start working fast. The scope and depth of the mining industry, its impact on the country and the state can be broken down into small digestible chunks as political, economic and social, but the bigger picture is a great deal more complicated. The Australian mining industry has seen exponential growth over the last 10 years with increasing exports to China. Western Australia, considered the economic hub of the country, now holds the nation's purse strings and is host to some of the world's most influential mining and resource sector companies. Perth, considered the second-most isolated city in the world, has seen changes on many fronts that not only includes an increase in resource dollars but a higher cost of living, a politically strong liberal state government and increasing financial disparity between mining and resource sector employees and everyone else. So how does one get all these issues into one story? You make phone calls and lots of them. One-hundred-and-eighty-one kilogrammes of camera equipment and an introductory dinner later, we are off filming in Perth and Karratha. We have 12 days to interview a range of people invested in the mining and resources sector in various ways. Finance experts, counsellors who see the downside of living a Fly-In-Fly-Out (FIFO) lifestyle, business operators who say their home towns are dying due to the mining industry and police who are left to clean up the alcohol and drug fuelled mess from workers blowing off steam. The biggest challenge of a shoot on this scale? Distance, time and getting people to talk on camera. Logistically, organising a film shoot for a crew that is flying from Malaysia to Perth in western Australia and then Karratha in the north-west of western Australia, with budgets and deadlines is exciting, fun and a challenge. Accommodation, hire cars, flights, places to eat, filming permissions and scheduling interviews, your world becomes one mission and one only. Get what the film crew needs so that the story is done. Karratha in the north of the state is a 22-hour drive by car or a two-hour flight on one of two commercial carriers that fly every hour to the isolated desert town. After checking in with 181 kilogrammes of camera equipment or 13 cases of luggage and arriving in Karratha, we unpack and our long days begin. The strain of putting together a half-hour documentary in a foreign country and dealing with tight deadlines can put a great deal of pressure on any crew. People generally get tired, they snap and sometimes when you are confined to a small space for hours on end (i.e. a car that is loaded to the roof with camera equipment) the last thing you want to do is see the people you are working with. But Chan Tau Chou and Lee Ali approached the long stressful days with humour, grace, professionalism and the ability to sleep in the most unusual locations (on top of windy rocky outcrops). Filming in the north-west was a whirlwind of driving long distances, climbing rocky terrain, rising at 4am and falling into bed at midnight with back-to-back interviews in between. I am excited to see the final product of Australia's boomtown curse. I think it is a story that people need to hear about.

A Commitment to the Mining Industry - Chinese (中国版本)
Today, the demand for mined materials is greater than at any other time in history. World development and increased urbanization are driving sustained dependence on minerals, metals and coal. Energy usage is expected to increase significantly in the coming decades—placing even more emphasis on supply, security, cost and environmental impact issues. As the demand for commodities grows, mining companies need a partner to support them in their efforts. A partner who understands the issues important to the mining industry — like safety, sustainability and productivity. And a partner with the equipment, technologies, end-to-end services and solutions to support their operations. Caterpillar is committed to being that partner.

US Mining Companies Show New Interest in Rare Earths
I'm Mario Ritter with the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish Today we continue our report on the group of chemical elements known as rare earth metals. These are mined from the earth and used to make technology from mobile phones to missiles. The United States once led the world in rare earths. Today China controls almost all production. Premier Wen Jiabao says China will not use these metals as a diplomatic weapon. But Japan says exports meant for that country have remained at Chinese ports as a result of a recent dispute. The United States stopped mining rare earths in two thousand two. Companies blamed environmental rules and low-priced imports from China. But now exploration is moving forward again. Edward Cowle is president and chief executive of a company called U.S. Rare Earths. He and his partners gained rights to some land in the American West about fifteen years ago. They had been interested in thorium -- a radioactive element that can fuel nuclear reactors but not be processed into weapons. Mr. Cowle later found that the land also held a lot of rare earth metals -- lately a subject of intense interest. The company has not started mining yet. It still has to get permits and work with other businesses to put operations in place. Ed Cowle says a lot of work remains. He says the earliest that they could open the mine would be in six to seven years. Another American company is Molycorp. Jim Sims, the public affairs director, says Molycorp has already begun producing three thousand tons of rare earths a year. That makes the United States the world's second largest producer, a distant second. Mr. Sims says Molycorp is the western hemisphere's only producer of rare earth products. The company says the largest reserves of rare earths outside of China are in its mine in Mountain Pass, California, and in the Mount Weld area of Australia. Jim Sims says Molycorp spends only about ten percent on mining. The big cost is in chemically separating the rare earths from the minerals that carry them. He says Molycorp raised about three hundred eighty million dollars when it sold stock to the public for the first time in July. The company aims to increase production to twenty thousand tons by two thousand twelve. It says that would more than meet current levels of demand in the United States.

Australian miner Rio Tinto is about to open one of the biggest copper mines on the planet in Mongolia, which will soon account for more than 30% of the country's entire GDP. "Some of the optimistic geologists we have say that this business could run for up to 100 years", Cameron McRae from Rio Tinto explains. But the company only cedes the Mongolian government a 34% stake, provoking worries about where the benefits of Mongolia's resource wealth will go. There's concerns the government is ill-equipped to strike complex mining deals in the national interest. "The deal is a financial transaction and whether it's really beneficial to Mongolia, I have many doubts about that", argues Dorjdari from the Responsible Mining Initiative. Environmentalists also worry that the mining push has come so fast and so aggressively that proper checks and balances are not in place. "Most tourists come to Mongolia because they want to see that pristine open space blue sky, but what if we couldn't offer it anymore?"

Why Is China Investing Billions in Africa? | NowThis World
China has invested billions of dollars into the continent of Africa to build massive infrastructure projects in African countries. Much of this infrastructure is part of China’s Belt and Road Initiative, an estimated 1 trillion dollar plan to connect the country to trade routes all over the world. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2LhNmtv While China’s Belt and Road Initiative was only proposed in 2013, the country’s first infrastructure project on the African continent was built decades ago. The TazaHra railway, completed in 1976, was built to connect copper mines in Zambia to Dar EH Salaam, Tanzania’s former capital. The TazHara railway was the first infrastructure project built on a pan-African scale. China’s Belt and Road projects will be designed to create new trade routes within and between African countries. In 2017, a Chinese firm opened a railway network in Kenya, connecting its capital Nairobi to the port city of Mombasa. There are already plans to extend this network into South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi. Many observers worry that African countries won’t be able to pay back these debts, placing them in what’s been called a quote “debt trap.” But others think that as African countries rise economically, they could actually have the upper hand by the time they negotiate payments back to China. This explains why African leaders have been so confident in calling Chinese investment a “win-win.” But is China’s investment in the continent actually a “win-win” as some African and Chinese leaders have said? OR is it just a new form of colonialism on a continent that’s experienced so much of it? In this episode, we’re examining China’s Belt and Road Initiative and what it might mean for Africa.

(exploration license) because you don't know what will happen, they don't know whether to invest any capital back into their property - it's really a state of flux for five or six years. What Shenhua have done is just said: 'Well, we'd like all this land; if you want to sell; we're happy to buy at three, four, sometimes five times the market rate and you can lease back the property for virtually nothing for as long as you want until we need the land."

In rural Australia, farmers are selling their land for big profits to a Chinese mining company, but the decision to sell has divided some Outback communities. STORYLINE: This is picture perfect rural Australia with a sea of yellow canola ripening in the sunshine. But this rural idyll is being carved up by Chinese mining companies that are carrying out exploratory work on the farmland. Soaring coal prices fuelled by China's economic growth have made mining parts of the Australian landscape far more lucrative than farming it. It's one example of how China's emergence as a global trading power may transform countries in ways never before contemplated and not yet fully understood. In eastern Australia, the long-sleepy town of Gunnedah is waking up. Construction workers and surveyors in high-visibility, fluorescent green shirts are a common sight, a constant reminder that the plans to mine are the cause of the economic resurgence. Not everyone is happy. The Liverpool plains are regarded by some as a national treasure. The prospect of mining has divided the town of 12,000. There are fears that coal dust, endless coal trains and damage to the aquifers could forever alter a pastoral way of life, perhaps even make it untenable. Ex-mayor Marshall says sellers told him Shenhua paid several times market value.

🇲🇲 Myanmar's Jade Curse | 101 East
Gold is valuable but jade is priceless, so goes a Chinese saying. For centuries, the Chinese consider jade an imperial stone with mystical properties. Today it is coveted all over China as a status symbol, a collectible and an investment. Demand from increasingly wealthy Chinese drives the value of jade through the roof. At this year's Shanghai World Jewellery Expo, auctioneers put the opening bid for top grade jade items at more than $160 a gram, exceeding four times the price of gold. Intricately designed pieces, made from top grade jade known as jadeite, are viewed as attractive investments despite the lack of scientific valuation methods. In recent years, jadeite has provided better returns than real estate. But the imperial stone delivers a death sentence to treasure hunters in Myanmar, where China's jadeite comes from. Most of Myanmar's raw jade enters a murky black market. Its official revenue from jade exports over from 2011 to 2014 was $1.3bn. But Harvard University's Ash Center estimates total jade sales - including through unofficial channels - were $8bn in 2011 alone, suggesting most of the revenue does not go into government coffers. The Myanmar government will not speak to us on camera. But our investigations reveal a corrupt senior government official who works with businessmen in the illegal trade of raw jade, including helping to falsify tax documents. In northern Kachin state, we follow jade smugglers to the remote Hpakant mining town, the source of the world's best jade. The men are part of the government's border guard force. The officer in charge tells us how he pays off army and police commanders along the smuggling trail to China. Hpakant is out of bounds to foreigners and no foreign journalists have been known to make it there for years. Large mining companies suspended operations here in 2012 after the Kachin Independence Army and the Myanmar government went to war the preceding year, ending a 17-year ceasefire. With peace talks stalling, most companies have yet to resume excavation. Despite the tension, tens of thousands of small time jade pickers have flooded Hpakant to sift through mine tailings, risking life and limb to toil in harsh conditions, hoping to strike jackpot. Some work alone, others in groups supported by businessmen. Their findings often go straight into the black market, forming the unregulated bedrock of the industry today. A dark force fuels their labour. Jade picker Aik San estimates 75 percent of the miners have become drug addicts. They get their daily dose of heroin or yama - a type of methamphetamine - from drug dens around town. It numbs them from their backbreaking labour and helps them work longer hours in the harsh weather. With hidden cameras, we obtain shocking footage from the drug dens, revealing the scale of drug abuse that infests the underbelly of the jade trade. We also find a drug rehabilitation centre in Kachin state with more than 50 recovering addicts from the mining town. One of them, Aung Kyaw Moe, painfully shares how his employer paid him and fellow workers with heroin to get them hooked so they would work harder for their next dose. As the hammer goes down in major Chinese cities for more glitzy jade items auctioned off at record levels, wealthy collectors celebrate yet another treasure possessed. It offers stark contrast to the wretched lives of mine pickers at the bottom of the supply chain, in a land far away. 101 East investigates the jade smuggling trail and uncovers the human cost of the imperial stone.

#Australia–Chinarelations #audioversity ~~~ Australia–China relations ~~~ Title: What is Australia–China relations?, Explain Australia–China relations Created on: 2019-03-29 Source Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australia%E2%80%93China_relations ------ Description: Australia–China relations, often known as the Sino–Australian relations, refers to the relations between the Commonwealth of Australia and China. The first Chinese consulate in Australia was established in 1909, and diplomatic relations were established in 1941. Australia continued to recognise the Republic of China government after it lost the Chinese Civil War and retreated to Taiwan in 1949, but switched recognition to the People's Republic of China on 21 December 1972. The relationship between China and Australia has grown considerably over the years. Both countries are actively engaged economically, culturally and politically which spans numerous organizations such as APEC, East Asia Summit and the G20. China is Australia's largest trading partner, and has invested in Australian mining companies to help meet the needs of its growing economy. Relations between the two countries began to deteriorate in 2018 due to growing concerns of Chinese political influence in various sectors of Australian society including the Government, universities and media as well as China's stance on the South China Sea dispute. ------ To see your favorite topic here, fill out this request form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScU0dLbeWsc01IC0AaO8sgaSgxMFtvBL31c_pjnwEZUiq99Fw/viewform ------ Source: Wikipedia.org articles, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license.

BHP Billiton in Corruption Probe over Beijing Olympics
Mining giant BHP Billion has confirmed today it's being investigated for corruption, over sponsorship deals for the Beijing Olympics. The US Department of Justice and the Australian Federal Police are trying to uncover whether BHP's sponsorship was used to gain advantage in the Chinese market. The US-Australian mining company supplied the materials for the Olympic metals. It also spent millions on official sponsorship and hospitality packages. Among the VIP's it hosted were senior Communist officials and other Chinese company executives. BHP is the largest mining company in the world and China is its biggest market. Business favors such as these are not uncommon in Chinese companies. But in the US, paying for the entertainment and lodging of government officials breaches foreign bribery laws. BHP says it's cooperating with investigations. It says it did nothing wrong and that it complied with US and Australian anti-graft laws. If found guilty in the US, BHP and the individuals involved face up to 5 years in prison and fines up to $2 million dollars.

Guinea's Chimpanzees on the Brink: Bauxite mining and Chinese dam drive chimps from their habitat
Guinea is home to about half of the world's critically endangered western chimpanzees but a bauxite mining boom is driving the chimpanzees from their habitats in Guinea's Boké region. To compensate, two mining firms agreed in 2017 to fund the establishment of Moyen-Bafing National Park, home to an estimated 5,300 chimpanzees. The national park is itself threatened by a bauxite mine and a proposed hydroelectric dam — projects that could kill as many as 2,800 of the great apes. #Guinea #Chimpanzees #Mongabay .

Four Rio Tinto staff charged with taking bribes in China
An Australian executive and three other employees of mining giant Rio Tinto went on trial in China, on charges of stealing secrets and offering bribes, in a case viewed as a barometer of China's handling of foreign business. Australian citizen Stern Hu and three Chinese nationals were arrested nine months ago at a time when Rio Tinto was acting as lead negotiator for global iron ore suppliers in price talks with Chinese steel mills. The four were taken into a Shanghai court and out of the public eye. China has not allowed Australian officials to attend sessions dealing with state secrets charges. However Australian consular officials will attend hearings involving the bribery charges. Here consul-general for Shanghai, Tom Connor, was seen entering the court. Rio Tinto has repeatedly said it hopes the case will be handled quickly and transparently and that in the meantime it's business as usual. The trial comes as business analysts have stated that it has become more difficult to do business in China. "In the beginning when foreign companies came to invest in China, they helped to promote the development of China's justice system, but now some foreign companies doing business in China have started to pollute China's political and judicial environment because they use bribery to beat competition in China in order to expand their business to gain huge profits. There are some people who question if foreign companies doing business in China will help to promote China's political system to reform, or help to improve China's judicial system. The impact of foreign companies on China has gone from positive to negative." Lawmakers in Australia have urged their government to push more forcefully for an open trial. Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd said that his government would be monitoring the trial closely. "The Australian government will be monitoring Mr Hu's trial very carefully. The second is, we are providing all forms of possible assistance, consular assistance and other forms of assistance to Mr Hu and his family. And the third is, I will say it once again very clearly - China has a different legal system to Australia. China has a different legal system to the rest of the world. The world will be watching very closely how this trial is handled." The maximum penalty for commercial espionage is seven years in prison, if the case is found to have caused extreme damage. The maximum penalty for taking large bribes is five years. Almost all criminal cases that go to trial in China end in conviction.

Which ASX industry and stock will be impacted by the Chinese economy
Before asking Greg and Chris to share their thoughts on the companies and sectors that will be impacted the most by a volatile Chinese stock market, Shepherd asked attendees which trend they believe will impact the ASX over the next 12 months. 45 per cent believe China will create the biggest impact, followed by rising US interest rates (39 per cent) and oil prices (16 per cent). Greg Canavan believes Australia’s banking sector will feel the biggest brunt from China’s slowing economy. “The Chinese economy has been slowing for four years now. Australia’s big mining companies were the first ones to be hit. Now that the slowdown has worked it’s was into the heart of China’s economy, its the banks turn.”, Greg said. Part of the offset of the China slowdown has been lower interest rates, the impact of which has been a housing boom in Australia. And Australia’s banks have done very well from this trend. Greg added, “If China’s economy slows more than what the market thinks, then the demand for Australia’s exports will slow, which in turn will see Australia’s economy slow down. A slowdown in our economy will impact the housing market and ultimately the banks that lend the money to homeowners.” Looking at Australia’s largest bank, Commonwealth Bank, Greg said the biggest risk is around CBA’s ability to maintain its high dividend. A slowdown in revenue growth or an increase in bad debts will ultimately impact dividends paid by Australia’s Big 4 banks. Chris Batchelor agrees with Greg, adding that Australia’s mining sector will continue to suffer, along with companies selling their goods and services into China. Chris talks through the impact of China on BHP, Australia’s largest mining stock. To wrap up Shepherd asks a question from the audience: A small percentage of the Chinese population actually invest in their stock market. Why then is it so volatile?

Failure—80% of China's Overseas Mining Deals Lose
Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews Over the past decade, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has invested heavily in raw materials overseas, but the majority of its trading is losing money. CITIC Pacific invested $10 billion on its Sino Iron project, purchasing an Australian mine producing magnetite iron-ore. Despite costing four-times its initial budget, it may lose hundreds-of-millions of dollars in 2014—after only one year. Experts say the CCP's overseas investments give corrupt officials a perfect opportunity to 'privatize' national assets. The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) says the $10-billion mine that's taken over eight years to develop in Cape Preston is evidence of just how much has gone wrong with China's decade-long push to buy up raw materials worldwide. Citic Pacific and its contractors made a series of blunders, from thinking they could import workers at Chinese pay levels to a botched bet on currencies that forced the company to seek a $1.5 billion bailout from its parent, reported WSJ. WSJ added, China rushed to buy up global commodities as its economy boomed—both to feed its factories and to ensure it wasn't reliant on Western powers for raw materials. …Investments in resources soared to $53.3 billion last year, from $8.2 billion in 2005, according to an investment database compiled by the American Enterprise Institute and the Heritage Foundation, continued WSJ. The head of China's mining association estimated in 2013 that out of all overseas mining deals, 80% had failed. China came late to the global resources boom and often overpaid for assets Western companies had passed over or wanted to sell, says WSJ, adding; China typically paid one-fifth more for oil-and-gas assets than industry average, estimates Scott Darling, Asian regional head of oil-and-gas research at J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. Prof. Wang Jiangsong, China Institute of Industrial Relations: "China lacks technique in overseas mergers and acquisitions." "The West have been doing overseas mergers for hundreds of years, but China has just started; it lacks information on the local policy, laws, management and in social and economic aspects." "Rushing into foreign markets and into acquisitions could turn into a financial disadvantage." Prof. Wang says another reason for overseas investment loss is the privatization of state-owned assets by the political elite. Wang Jiangsong: "How did this budget that was more than three-times the initial amount come to be?" "The overseas acquisitions by state-owned enterprises are not subject to any supervision, like by internal workers, the society, or by legislative bodies." "So theoretically, money laundering through overseas acquisitions is possible; it's a black hole for sure, as it lacks supervision or any effective regulations."   Commentator Yang Hengjun says the CCP's investment has, due to lack of supervision, allowed individuals to gain wealth at the cost of national assets. Yang Hengjun, general manager, Sydney Times: "The main reason is the system and the corrupt officials; everyone, including Zhou Yongkang and his oil group, monopolizes overseas oil investments." "Larry Yung, the former chairman of CITIC Pacific, was one of his allies; they trust only their own people." "The numerous overseas investments have never been led by the Chinese people." Larry Yung is the son of China's former Vice President, Rong Yiren. The CCP's overseas investments are one primary way for princelings to embezzle state assets, says Yang Hengjun. The project leaders are all corrupt, and being overseas, no one can control them; the accounting is just a mess.   Sept. 11—the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) filed a lawsuit against five former CITIC Pacific chiefs —including Larry Yung—for lying about the company's financial state, which resulted in a loss by equity investors. The Commission sought compensation for 4,500 victims who had lost a combined total of $1.9 billion in investments. 《神韵》2014世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

I think this is a big step towards creating a universal price, so we reached this agreement." 10. Wide of steel factory 11.

Wide of vessel STORYLINE: China announced an iron ore supply deal on Monday with an Australian miner in an apparent effort to push global suppliers to cut prices in deadlocked contract talks. Australia's Fortescue Metals Group will sell China iron ore for 94 US cents per dry metric ton, the state-sanctioned China Iron & Steel Association announced. That is below the price of 97 US cents agreed to with Japanese and Korean mills for this year's supplies and that major suppliers wanted Chinese mills to accept. But the ore quality is lower and the supply is a small fraction of China's huge consumption, undercutting its importance as a basis for prices. Shan Shanghua, Secretary General of China Iron and Steel Association said this agreement with FMG was a 'big step' towards implementing overall price cuts. Shan told Chinese broadcaster, CCTV, "the contract we signed is legally binding, so the company (Fortescue Metals Group) has promised that the price they offer to any Chinese company will remain the same (for each company) this year. I think this is a big step towards creating a universal price, so we reached this agreement." China is trying to use its status as the world's biggest steelmaker and consumer of iron ore to press suppliers for deep price cuts following two years of hikes totalling more than 100 per cent. Major suppliers agreed to a 33 per cent cut with Japanese and Korean mills this year but Beijing wants bigger reductions. China is trying to reduce reliance on the three global producers - Anglo-Australian miners Rio Tinto Ltd., BHP Billiton Ltd. and Brazil's Vale SA - by reaching out to smaller producers and helping to develop mines in Africa. "The deal breaks the market impasse that had enveloped the Chinese iron ore industry and created uncertainty and risk," Fortescue said in a statement. Tensions over the talks have been fuelled by the detention in July of four Rio employees who Chinese state media say are accused of paying bribes to obtain confidential information on China's negotiating stance. The Rio employees were formally arrested last week on charges of infringing trade secrets and bribery. The deal could give a boost to Fortescue, an ambitious newcomer that has built up production despite competition from Rio and BHPB. Fortescue's promised supply is more than half its annual production of about 35 (m) million tons but equal to just 4 per cent of China's consumption last year of about 450 (m) million tons. The steel industry is vital for China's burgeoning export business.

The SPACE MINING EMPIRE? The case for LUXEMBOURG - VisualPolitik EN
The space race is back. Companies like SpaceX or Virgin Galactic have given a new push to the space exploration. But there is more than this: outside of Earth there are lots of natural resources to be exploited. Some asteroids are nothing but flying piles of minerals, water or even natural gas. Both Japan and America have already sent proves to the space in order to retrieve some samples of materials. But… what legislation would cover the space mining industry? What would happen if two companies have a corporate conflict on an asteroid? So far, the country with the most advance legislation on this matter is… Luxembourg! This small country has already a cluster of space mining companies. They are completely determined to lead this brand new industry… but how does this legislation work? Can Luxembourg become a space mining empire? We will answer all of this questions on this video.
