Mark Fellows speaks with SME about the report "Permitting, Economic Value and Mining in the United States," commissioned by the National Mining Association. The report finds that permitting delays in the United States have a real economic impact and can devalue a project by as much as one-third during the permitting process that takes and average of 7-10 years.
