Resolute Mining MD John Welborn agrees with Defence Minister Linda Reynolds that there are increased terrorism risks for Australian mining companies operating in West Africa. Reynolds was while speaking at the Africa Downunder mining conference in Perth. Resolute has mines in Mali, Senegal and Ghana, and Wellborn says the terrorism risk is getting worse, particularly in Mali where its main operations are located. Wellborn also contends that China is "stealing the march" on the US and Australia when it comes to investing in Africa.
