sharing in governance of extractive industries


A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

Imagine the possibilities: oil trading, liquified natural gas, iron ore production...all these subjects and many more can be covered using the booksprint approach, says Johnny West, as he announces release of the "Mining Contracts" book, produced with this technique.

Lindsey Marchessault too shares a resource, on how to improve mining tax administration and collection frameworks.

Yet another resource is ASM-PACE's new guest blog on social and environmental sustainability in artisanal gold mining.

Johnny West sees another potential: mapping the physical infrastructure of extractive industries from space. (Remember to turn on the satellite view on the sample oil well in the Niger Delta.)

Finally, a caution: You can pay a little now for “Community Controlled Impact Assessments” or later pay $2 million a day as your rigs are tied up because of protests. Emily Greenspan explains.
