"In the face of softer commodities, mining company CEOs are reworking
their mine plans to generate the net cash flows demanded by financial
markets," said Tony Robson, Co-Head Mining Research, BMO Capital Markets.  
"Lacklustre commodity prices, caused mostly by slower Chinese growth and
increased production in the West, has resulted in miners - large and small
-cutting expenditures," added David Haughton, Co-Head Mining Research, BMO
Capital Markets. "At the same time, share prices have slumped, making it
harder - although not impossible - to raise equity."
