Article publication in Mining Journal: "Spain: Going for growth"

13th December 2013

 

Juan Leon Coullaut, CEO at CRS Ingeniería has published an article in the journal Ming Journal of Spanish mining growth in recent years (Issue/Supplement MJ 13/12/13), under the tittle: "Spain: Going for growth"

 

In recent years, the mining industry has undergone major changes in Spain, more so than in other EU countries, conditioned by the intensity of the economic crisis, and the rise and subsequent maintenance in relatively high mineral commodity price levels. These two factors have influenced the different mining subsectors in distinct ways.

 

The mining sector in Spain now presents growth prospects in the metallic minerals and the industrial minerals subsectors, foreseeing the startup of new mining operations in the short term. These perspectives are conditioned by the evolution of global demand and, in a positive sense, by the Spanish economic crisis, high rates of unemployment should encourage support from the administration for industrial projects.
