Useful resources for investing in mining stocks:

Miningmx gives mining and resource stock investors a specialised and comprehensive news, analysis and deal watching site for Africa. News articles and editorials offer independent opinions on the latest mining and exploration activities. A 'rainmakers & pot stirrers' section provides a useful profile of top deal makers. Special reports cover important trends like Chinese investment and major finds. The site also produces a mining yearbook and mining conference coverage.

This site offers daily explanations of the latest gold and silver price moves. Actionable analysis includes studies of industry exploration and technology trends as well as the effect of labour unrest on production schedules. Independent financial and political analysis is also useful as these factors have a heavy impact on resource prices and operations.

Those investors who are particularly bitten by the gold and silver bug will find that this site offers a wide range of international news and commentary. It maintains an extensive database on gold, silver and other metal companies where annual reports, press releases and analyses are available to investors. Commentary, podcasts and features on investment opportunities provide plenty of perspective for anyone looking for contrarian viewpoints. Whether you are looking to make a play on gold, gold derivative instruments or on gold production and mining companies, this site offers the tools to study the global industry.
