Pit Stop No18: My top 10 Mining Blogs and Websites
Hello there Reader. Looking to learn more on mining? Great. Here’s a list of what I think are some of the best blogs and websites out there.
Mining.com is one of the best resources for global mining news. Timely information. Articles are short and to the point. Nice format as well.
The Northern Miner is very similar to mining.com. Well-known resource for global mining news. Articles get reposted on other website and blogs.
Mining Facts Org Although not a place to find news and not a blog either but a pretty amazing source of technical information on mining and sustainability. I would highly recommend to students.
Infomine.com is the father of mining.com. It focuses mainly on commodity prices and analysis but you’ll need to pay a subscription to access the information.
SEDAR is a repository for public listed companies in Canada. These companies have the legal obligation to deposit all documents on SEDAR, which are made available to the public. Although SEDAR looks OUTDATED and HIDEOUS (which arguably it does), I would still suggest looking into it if you want to evaluate a specific mining company and find all sorts of documents from newly discovered resources/reserves to feasibility studies and financial statements.
Mining.ca is the mining Association of Canada website. It is not a blog but you can still find some great info on Canadian mining and sustainability initiatives. I would particularly suggest checking out the Facts and Figures file of the mining industry in Canada in their resources section or by clicking here.
For information on mining projects in Quebec and the Quebec Plan Nord, CTV News and LaPresse Plus regularly publish articles on that topic which can be accessed online. If you don’t have any prior knowledge in mining, I would recommend checking out MinesQC.com. MinesQC is a good resource to start with as it’s not technical. Also, you can ask any question and the MinesQC team will answer you on the website!
NRCan Canada maps are super interesting and interactive mining maps of Canada. Created by the Federal Government of Canada and accessible to all.
The Geodudecorner is a great blog meant to help student transition from academia to industry. On his blog, Geodude provides useful tips to help students market themselves. Students! Check it out now.
The Miningdiaries – THE best blog you’ll ever come across. Seriously though, pretty amazing, huh?
Enjoy the read!
