It is conceivable that every professional employed in the mining industry will at some time be involved in foreign direct investment (FDI).  Mineral occurrences of interest may be in foreign jurisdictions, and therefore it is essential that decision-makers are fully aware of the legal and fiscal mechanisms of these jurisdictions and can objectively evaluate the risks that exist when investing their shareholder’s funds.

The decision-maker needs to be both bold and cautious, a combination of attributes that can only come with experience and knowledge.

One of the most characteristic features of trans-boundary resources investment is the dramatic risk/reward relationship associated with exploration and production. Therefore, it is essential that resource professionals understand the dynamics of these risks.
