Australian-listed mining companies have been involved in nearly $US12 billion ($A15.8 billion) worth of mergers and acquisitions since the start of 2017-18, the highest level of activity since the 2012 financial year, when the mining boom was at its peak. Most deals involve small and medium-sized mining firms, with Eddie Rigg of advisory firm Argonaut saying it "has never been busier". He says some smaller firms are taking the view that the best way to "realise value" is to be acquired, rather than trying to develop deposits themselves.
