[Update 10/13/13: Fraser Institute advised us that they are having some difficulties with the link to the Mining Survey embedded in some of the advertising material. This has resulted in participants receiving an error message when they try to access the survey. Please use the following link: http://www.cvent.com/d/24q7w7/3B ]
Officers, managers, and other experts with mining exploration and development companies, and their advisors, are asked to complete the 2013 survey questionnaire with respect to jurisdictions about which they are knowledgeable. Participation is electronic, at: 2013 Mining Survey
The Survey of Mining Companies: 2012/2013 (published February 2013) ranked the investment climate of 96 jurisdictions around the world based on the opinions of mining executives representing 742 mineral exploration and development companies. Participating companies reported exploration spending of $6.2 billion US in 2012 and $5.4 billion US in 2011.
They have shortened the survey questionnaire this year and it can be completed in less than 15 minutes. Participants will be thanked by receiving an electronic copy of the survey at the time of its release, as well as being entered into a draw to win $1,000 (USD) if they provide their contact information. All information collected through the survey remains confidential.
