Mining for Value

Industry leaders disclose lessons learned from the supercycle.

The supercycle that gripped the mining industry during the early years of the twenty-first century was unparalleled in its speed, length and intensity. When boom finally turned to bust, many companies were psychologically unprepared and financially overexposed.

Mining for Value examines what went wrong. It offers key insights from senior figures who experienced the cycle at first hand, and supports the next generation of leaders as they seek to build a more robust, diverse and sustainable industry for the future.

The twelve leadership lessons provide valuable and constructive insights into a difficult time for the industry and what needs to be avoided, changed and strengthened when managing a mining company into the future.

MiningMining for Value is a joint initiative of Spencer Stuart and Cesco.
