The only advantage of sustainable competition comes from the ability to innovate beyond competitors—James Morse (the world famous management expert)

In addition to encompassing resouces, the key to the survival and development of gold mines to have advanced production technology.Those who owns the resources and advanced production technology own the competitive capital. At present, the pressure on environmental protection faced by gold mining companies is growing.
