Abstract

Abstract The traditional view of competitiveness in exploration, mining and mineral processing stresses the importance of quality mineral endowments. In recent years this view has come increasingly under attack by executives in the mineral industries and economists emphasizing the important role government policies play, both in enhancing and undermining the competitiveness of their domestic producers. This article, after examining the nature of competitiveness, surveys these two opposing schools of thought, examining in the process some of the interesting and important issues encountered in the on-going debate.
