Mining Contract: how to read and understand them

Drawing from several of the contracts on, "Mining Contracts: How to Read and Understand Them" is a new book created to highlight strong contract clauses and explore how others could be improved. It goes beyond legal considerations to explore the policy questions and company interests underlying contract provisions—issues that are crucial for understanding and negotiating contracts, and for monitoring their enforcement.

The organisation issuing this book are International Senior Lawyers Project (ISLP), OpenOil, the Vale Columbia Center on Sustainable International Investment (VCC), and Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI).
