LONDON, March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Mining companies faced significant challenges in 2012 due to a slowdown in
China, a major consumer of raw materials. Weak demand for raw materials led to
a number of mining companies delaying mining projects and closing some mines.
However, a rebound in the Chinese economy augurs well for mining companies
such as Vale SA (NYSE: VALE). In the U.S., coal producers such as Alpha
Natural Resources Inc. (NYSE: ANR), and Arch Coal Inc. (NYSE: ACI) struggled
as natural gas prices dropped to record low levels in 2012. U.S. coal
producers are now looking to increase their exports in order to offset weak
domestic demand. Meanwhile, demand for rare earth minerals is expected to
remain robust due to increasing use tablets and smartphones. This should
benefit Molycorp Inc. (NYSE: MCP). Uranium mining companies such as Cameco
Corporation (NYSE: CCJ) are also expected to see a strong year ahead. On
Wednesday, mining stocks ended mostly lower even as the broad market edged
higher. StockCall has released free charting and technical research on these
aforementioned companies. Register to read these reports at
