South Africa becomes China's third biggest iron ore supplier | MINING.com

South Africa becomes China's third biggest iron ore supplier | MINING.com | Kameron-Current Issues | Scoop.it

Marc Howe writes:

 

South Africa has become the third largest supplier of iron ore to China as rival exporter India struggles to overcome troubles in its mining sector.

 

Business Day Live reports that exports of iron ore from South Africa to China leapt a stunning 12% to 40.6 million tonnes in 2012 compared to 2011, while Indian exports plunged nearly 55% to 33 million tonnes.

 

India implemented a strict crackdown on illegal operations in its mining sector last year, stanching overseas sales of iron ore to the immense benefit of international competitors. ...

No surprise here. China has been on this course for years now.

Jake Red Dorman's curator insight, November 19, 2014 2:42 PM

Africa has always had a large amount of resources. As a matter of fact they probably have the most as records show so far. Especially in the Congo, ore isn't a rare sight. The only reason they aren't one of the richest continents is because of European countries taking over the land for their resources early on in African history. Africa has increased its iron production by 12% in the past year, passing India in iron ore sent to China.

I agree, those who are armed are better protected than those who are not. If police are armed why shouldn't we? By the time the police show up a crime has already been committed! 

Blake Gatzke's curator insight, February 27, 2013 9:09 PM

I think this article is very insightful because it gives great examples of how the president should really deal with gun control.  They should stop putting the blame on guns and start putting it on the criminals that use them.  They are using the tragedy in Connecticut to blame guns.  The topic they should really be focusing on is the country's mental health system and policies.  Guns need to stop being glorified in video games and movies.

Sam Bass's curator insight, February 27, 2013 11:31 PM

I think that this article shows some great ways to help prevent gun violence.  I really think that our president needs to consider some of these ideas.  It seems to me that he thinks that blaming things on the weapons will help solve this problem by removing them.  I would have to disagree with that.  The criminals are the ones responsible for these crimes that are happening, not the weapons.  Realistically, I believe that if he takes away people's firearms and taking away their right to self defense, there will be more trouble than there already is.
