Mining Journal Intelligence: Project Pipeline Handbook 2023

Mining Journal Intelligence’s Project Pipeline Handbook 2023 presents our pick of the 50 best mining projects in the world today, selected using our unique, objective scoring method. The aim is to identify quality – a daunting task for investors given the large volume of projects, and the 2,000-plus mining and exploration companies currently trading.

Our evaluation process involves collecting information from economic studies – ranging from PEA to feasibility stages – as they are published and feeding data into our system, which calculates a score out of 100. 

Projects are assessed across 13 metrics in six categories – Economics, Jurisdiction, Confidence, Financeability, Engineering/metallurgy, and Geology. More than 150 studies have been added since last year’s handbook.

Owners of high-scoring projects are invited to present at the handbook’s sister events, Mining Journal Select and MiningNews Select. The report also features analysis of our database of more than 400 projects with combined capex of US$170 billion (assets are removed when they begin production). 

Key Findings:

  • What are the best mining projects?

  • How many study-stage projects are there today?
  • What types of projects are advancing through the study stages?
