China: metal price hike may lead to the development of more sustainable antimony mining

Global metal prices have risen by 150%, largely due to the closure of illegal antimony mines in China because of health and safety reasons, logistical problems and government intervention. While this may not be good news for traders, higher metal prices may incentivize China and other countries with rich reserves of antimony to mine the rare material in a more sustainable and safer manner.

CNOOC/Chesapeake deal could provide technological push for China's shale gas industry

In a bid to bridge its supply-demand gap, China is looking to acquire US exploration and production companies' technical expertise so that it can develop and monetize its potentially huge untapped shale gas reserves. By acquiring a 33.3% interest in the US' Eagle Ford shale formation, state-owned CNOOC has taken the lead in this direction, which could see other Chinese companies follow suit.
