An excavator operator waits for trucks to be loaded with iron ore at the Bedara Bhommanahalli (BBH) iron ore mines at Chitradurga in the southern Indian state of Karnataka November 9, 2012. India’s efforts to clamp down on illegal mining have handed a $15 billion lifeline to global iron ore giants, and there could be more to come. Steps taken by central and state authorities to clean up the mining and export of iron ore have shut down output in two key producing states, slashing shipments and forcing steel mills to import a raw material the country has in abundance.

A drilling machine (R) and a dump truck are seen during the drilling of a winter test pit in an unknown location February 22, 2005. Just a few years ago, mining was in decline in Sweden and much of the sparsely populated, forested north looked like being left to logging companies and the native moose and reindeer. But thanks to strong demand for metals and rocketing prices, copper, zinc, gold and silver mining are undergoing a rebirth. Mining companies will invest more than 30 million euros ($35 million) in exploration in Sweden this year, mainly in the north, according to estimates by the Raw Materials Group (RMG) consultancy, up from around 25 million euros in 2004.
