Not my mantra, but those of the mining companies that appear to be overjoyed with the election of Rupiah Banda. According to the National Post, many see the the election of Rupiah Banda as potentially good news for mining companies like First Quantum Minerals Ltd. (FM/TSX) and Equinox Minerals Ltd. (EQN/TSX). In the words of Greg Barnes : "It appears that the onerous tax rates enacted into legislation in Zambia earlier this year are likely to be significantly watered down. And this should enable the country's copper producers to regain a stable economic footing.." Which got me thinking, I never really heard RB say anything during the compaign about the fiscal regime. Could it be that the mining companies know something that we don't?
