SpaceX’s first crewed mission ends successfully with safe splashdown SpaceX’s first crewed mission ends successfully with safe splashdown
Published: 03 Aug 20
The first ever commercial crewed spacecraft mission ended successfully on Sunday when the Crew Dragon capsule plashed down in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of the US state of Florida. The spacecraft, designed, developed, owned and operated by private-sector company SpaceX, was carrying US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa) astronauts Robert Behnken and Doug Hurley.  SpaceX was founded and is headed by South African-born engineer and entrepreneur Elon Musk. This mission was technically a demonstration mission, known as Demo-2 (Demo-1 was an uncrewed mission), which was the final step before Nasa can complete certification the Crew Dragon spacecraft, the Falcon 9 rocket, their ground support systems, and mission procedures and operations, for routine crewed missions.
Weekly Coal Index Report Weekly Coal Index Report Has PDF
Published: 03 Aug 20
There is an expectation of price recovery in the market, as demand for power grows alongside the loosening of Covid-19 restrictions, and as more producers hold back supply. In Europe, coal burn is likely to remain weak through 2020 but will be offset by an even bigger contraction in supply, drawing down stocks heading into 2021 and explaining the steep contango that we see in the forward curve.
Crop nutrients have double potential of coal being exited – Anglo Crop nutrients have double potential of coal being exited – Anglo
Published: 03 Aug 20
Covid-19 notwithstanding, diversified mining company Anglo American will this year be spending the $300-million that it forecast on the Woodsmith polyhalite project in the UK, which gives it entry into the crop nutrients business at a time when fertilising is being hailed a godsend to ease global food security fears. On  entering crop-nutrient mining and exiting thermal-coal mining, Anglo CEO Mark Cutifani told analysts during a virtual conference: “I think it’s important to remember that as we transition out of thermal coal, we’re building the crop nutrients business, which probably has got double the potential contribution it can make to the business. We think that’s a pretty good swop.”
Guyana-Zijin court hearing delayed
Published: 03 Aug 20
TSX-listed Guyana Goldfields still expects its takeover by Zijin Mining to conclude this month, despite a delay in a court hearing for the final order to approve the South America-focused mining company's takeover by the Chinese group. The Ontario Superior Court of Justice fairness hearing for the final order to approve the arrangement has been deferred from July 30, to August 14, after two third parties informed the court that they intended to appear at the hearing. The third parties are seeking that the Guyana Goldfields sets aside, in anticipation of the completion of the arrangement, funds for the potential payment of certain claims they have made against the company. The gold miner says neither has indicated that it is seeking to challenge the fairness of the arrangement to shareholders.

Published: 03 Aug 20
Uranium and rare earths elements (REE) company Energy Fuels CEO Mark Chalmers is optimistic that the proposed $1.5-billion to create a US uranium reserve will be funded and implemented, despite sometimes “slow and uneven” progress in the government. “Our allies in Congress and the Trump Administration are pushing hard to fund $150-million a year to create the US uranium reserve,” he says, referring to the 2021 Budget request for the Department of Energy to establish a domestic reserve.
