Alumina CEO Mike Ferraro says mining companies should not be rigid about the rate of return they expect from an investment. A rate of return of 15 per cent has become the minimum requirement for most large mining corporations when deciding whether to proceed with a project, but there are signs that some are prepared to go below this rate of return due to very low interest rates. Newcrest Mining CEO Sandeep Biswas says he would be more willing to accept lower rates of return on new projects than on expansions of existing ones.
