One imagines, when reading the law, a piece of legislation being passed in a flurry with no review by an upper chamber; the law contains numerous conceptual and drafting weaknesses that one would expect to find in an initial draft of legislation (perhaps). More problematic are concepts such as listing on the local stock exchange (if holding a mining concession) and processing minerals in-country "if the economic viability justifies it". These are clear signs of legislation passed (or at least conceptualised) at the height of a commodity boom.

Regulatory Risk Rating


Measures the risk that an investor will lose the economic benefits of a mineral discovery based only on the key laws, regulations and policies in the jurisdiction – with a rating of 100 equating to zero risk.  

Corruption Potential Index


Measures a jurisdictions’ corruption potential, providing a mining specific rating based on: (1) the importance of various government decisions in the administration of mineral projects; (2) the degree of discretion associated with those decisions; (3) the number of state actors involved in decision making.

Corruption Risk Index


Measures the likelihood of government actors using discretionary powers for improper purposes, providing a mining specific corruption risk rating by mathematically screening the CPI through the lens of the Economists’ Democracy Index.
