DURING these very difficult times for the global mining industry, the word resilient has a number of appropriate definitions. As a noun resilience is a description for all those who are surviving the tribulations despite poor prices, higher costs, lack of capital, increasing ant-mining sentiment and declining demand while as an adjective resilient defines the capability of companies to keep afloat, or in shape, despite being bent, stretched or deformed. Other words that can be used to describe the qualities of the mining industry and companies battling to stay in front, whether they be exploring, developing, mining, supplying or investing, are determination, innovation and common-sense.
