April Issue of the International Resource Journal Now Online

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Mar 25, 2013) - George Media Inc. is pleased to announce that the April issue of The International Resource Journal is now available online at www.internationalresourcejournal.com. Click on the magazine cover to enter the publication.

Renewable energy is the star of this issue and an exclusive interview with South Africa's Minister of Energy, Elizabeth Dipuo Peters MP, kicks it off in spectacular fashion. She explains why the South African government is pushing to increase the country's reliance on sustainable energy sources and reveals how close it is to achieving its ambitious targets.

Three of the biggest renewables players in South Africa discuss the significant wind and solar projects they're developing as part of an initiative to transform the country's energy landscape. Columns from Control Risks, BSR and On Common Ground Consultants offer alternative perspectives on the renewables debate; exploring the viability, take-up, impacts and potential benefits of the technology.

This issue also turns the spotlight on Australia as the country begins early preparations for its federal election in September. An interview with financial expert Craig James of Commsec, a familiar face on Australian TV, takes an in-depth look at the state of the country's resources-driven economy, while the PRS Group and The Resource Channel look at the upcoming election and the practice of importing foreign workers.

All of that is in addition to our usual selection of features on enterprising resources explorers, developers and miners from all corners of the globe.
