According to the analysis company Raw Materials Group, RMG, the coming decade looks promising, with a strong demand for metals as the developing economies continue to grow. The basic need for metals needed to raise the economies of the developing countries and their infrastructure, and the demand for metal intense products for communication, schools, medical care and accommodations still remain, regardless of financial crises. In these countries, however, it becomes more difficult and costly to find new mineral deposits, for several reasons:
The deposits are more inaccessibly located, in more extreme climate zones.
The mineral content of the deposits is lower and the deposits are located at larger depths.
The deposits are more complex and extraction will be more difficult.
It takes longer and longer time to receive all necessary permits.
