Editorial and news copy The Editor of Mining Media International of The ASIA Miner, John Miller, is keen to hear from prospective advertisers who may want to have editorial material included in the magazine, which is not of an advertising nature. There are two categories of information accepted by the editor: Fee for service information News copy Fee for service information is information of a general nature about the advertisers, which the advertiser wishes to have written about them. This information is paid for according to the amount of space required. 250 words will be ¼ page 400 words will be ½ page 750 words will be full page If photos are wanted to be included, then the word count decreases in the space allocated. The information and photographs are to be supplied by the advertiser and the editor reserves the right to edit the copy with final approval given by the advertiser News copy is information, which has news value. It has to be worthy of being called news, that is, it is new information. This could include new contracts being won, new equipment purchases, new research methods, basically anything that constitutes something new that is happening with that advertiser. In this instance an advertiser will have paid for an advertisement, but the news copy is provided free of charge as it will be labelled as news. The advertiser will supply the information, the editor may require further information and photographs to be supplied. The Editor may need to rewrite the news copy to fit the magazine style, however, the advertiser will see a final copy before going to print.
Translations from English to Chinese simplified is an added service to our advertisers and for all editorial copy, the editorial material is translated from English to Chinese simplified and both the English and Chinese versions of the editorial copy appear on the same page of each magazine, together with any associated photographs.

Philippe Richard - General Manager, Manitou Asia Pte Ltd I have just read through your last editorial of Asia Miner and fully support not only the content but the psychological impact that it contributes to. Amongst our business volume we have a significant clientele base in the mining industry and in this sector as well as others, many down-costing or project postponing decisions are strongly influenced by subjective perception of the economical slow down. Indeed very few of us (if any !) can claim to have an in depth and first hand knowledge of the worldwide economical mechanisms. We send you our full support in your positive initiative as it counterbalances the usual pessimistic scenarios that we are mainly served. Have great trips ahead and keep conveying the message! Penny Gould - President and Corporate Secretary, Mindoro Resources Many thanks for your great efforts in taking both Mindoro's news to the industry in Asia , as well as industry news in Asia to the rest of the world.
