Copper Mining Brings Boon To Serbian Economy

In Serbia, foreign companies are resuming a long tradition of prospecting for gold and copper, and have discovered deposits that could mark a revival of the country's mining sector, Reuters reports. International mining companies are even delaying riskier exploration projects in places like Africa to focus their efforts on developments in Serbia, where infrastructure is better and political risks are lower. The Serbian town of Bor, a mining center for over a century and home to one of the largest copper mines in Europe, is at the heart of the revival.
