Fraser Survey

Fraser Institute Survey of Mining 2016/2017

As explained elsewhere on this site, the Fraser Survey of Mining Companies is a very useful tool to determine country/jurisdictional risk, as it is by far the most comprehensive of its kind. For your convenience, I put the Policy Perception Index (PPI), the most important index for country/jurisdictional risk, in an Excel spreadsheet which is shown here, and can be downloaded here.

My spreadsheet may contain differences from the Fraser Institute document, due to non-intentional erroneous copy-pasting by my side, so please check the data yourself at the source.
