It is unquestionable that one of the main economic benefits of mining for mineral rich countries is the potential tax revenue that is mobilized from the sector. That has become increasingly important with the steep change in mineral prices and profits that occurred in the mid 2000s. Many governments have sought to capture a greater share of these increased profits. This trend raises questions about the sustainability of the recent and planned fiscal changes. Also the focus of debate has broadened from taxing the resource rent and mobilising revenues towards the appropriate means of allocating these government revenues and of using them to promote sustainable development.
The Dundee Mining Seminar (this year in London) will explore some of these questions. The seminar traditionally provides a level playing field for the discussion of current concerns affecting the mining industry (in keeping with the university host). It brings together a select group of people with high-level experience from industry, governments, academia and NGOs.
