World Risk Report - 2018

The annual Mining Journal World Risk Report (feat.MineHutte ratings) is a comprehensive review of mining risk, which includes a jurisdiction-by-jurisdiction ratings system and an assessment of general business and operating risks and trends.

This report includes Mining Journal’s Investment Risk Index, a robust system for rating jurisdictions across multiple metrics covering Legal, Governance, Social, Fiscal and Infrastructure risks.

It is weighted toward hard, established risk-related indices but also includes perceived risk, which comes from the findings of a refocused World Risk Survey.

  • Investment Risk Index rates jurisdictions across five risk categories: Legal, Governance, Social, Fiscal and Infrastructure.
  • Includes MineHutte’s Regulatory Risk Rating for mining codes globally, along with its Corruption Risk Index.
  • ‘Hard Risk’ numbers are gathered from established risk metrics and combined with ‘Risk Perception’ numbers gathered from our World Risk Survey.
  • Scores weighted toward Hard numbers to provide stability and transparency to ratings year-on-year.
  • Separate General Risk section ranks and assesses headlining Business and Operating risks on severity, manageability and trend (increasing or receding).
  • More than 3,800 unique and aggregated datapoints and some 30,000 words of analysis,discussion and thought leadership.
