Fraser Institute Mining Survey 2012/2013 Needs Participants

The Fraser Institute, Canada’s leading public policy think-tank, conducts an annual survey of how miners and explorers rate the investment climate of jurisdictions around the world. The results identify the countries, states, and provinces whose policies create the greatest barriers to investment in the mining sector.

The results of the 2011-2012 Mining Survey, which elicited a great deal of media attention, can be downloaded as a free PDF at:

We are asking you to participate in the 2012-2013 Survey of Mining Companies. Your participation will help to ensure that the results reflect the views of professionals with first-hand knowledge of the mining industry investment climate in countries around the globe. Broad involvement in the survey will increase the number of jurisdictions evaluated, thereby increasing the number of governments who get candid and anonymous opinions on their policies. Additionally, all information collected through the survey remains confidential.

You can complete the survey on line in less than 15 minutes. To thank you for your participation, we will send you an email alert the very moment the survey is released, with a link to the survey. You will have the information at the same instant as the media.

We will also automatically enter you in a draw to win $1,000 (Cdn).
