LONDON/KATOWICE, Poland (Reuters) - A two-year recovery in the mining industry has faltered, as trade tensions between China and the United States and concerns about economic growth weaken commodity prices and deter investment. Institutional investors and fund managers say tighter regulations, namely MiFID, a major reform of European Union financial markets, have limited banks' lending to mining companies and reduced research coverage, giving them fewer tools to carry out due diligence on businesses. Sustainability and anxiety about the impact of mining on global warming has also risen to the top of the agenda, pushing miners to find new resources in riskier and politically unstable jurisdictions.

SolGold's (SOLG.L) coveted Ecuadorian copper-gold prospect may be 20 percent bigger than the mining group said earlier this week, its chief executive Nick Mather said on Thursday. SolGold, in which Mather has a near 5 percent stake, said on Tuesday that its Alpala project in Ecuador's Cascabel region was around double the size and grade quality it was known to be in December 2017. "We think there's still 20 percent to go," Mather said, adding he expected it to be around two years before work would start on building a mine at Alpala.
MELBOURNE/LONDON (Reuters) - The world's biggest miner BHP (BHP.AX) (BLT.L) nearly doubled its stake in SolGold Plc (SOLG.L) on Tuesday, vying for position with top shareholder Newcrest Mining (NCM.AX) as it eyes SolGold's promising Cascabel copper-gold project in Ecuador. BHP, which bought into SolGold just six weeks ago, has increased its holding to 11.2 percent, nearing the 14.5 percent stake held by Newcrest, Australia's biggest listed gold miner. For a two-year period, it agreed it cannot acquire a further stake in SolGold above a threshold of 246,634,271 shares, which would take it to around 13.5 percent, without SolGold consent.

China's overseas expansion will spread over land that is home to more than half the world's population, potentially boosting copper use by 1.6 million tonnes, or roughly 7 percent of annual demand, major miner BHP said on Thursday. BHP has analysed the impact of China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), a network of overseas construction projects, on commodity demand on the basis of a database it constantly updates. It said China's overseas expansion plan covered 115 partners across Eurasia, parts of Africa, Latin American and Oceania, up from 68 countries or regions it cited in a previous blog post in September last year.
SolGold's share price leapt around 17 percent as the market took BHP's acquisition as a vote of confidence in the project, while BHP shares (BLT.L) slipped one percent by 1330 GMT.

In common with other miners that have recovered from the price crash of 2015-16, BHP is seeking to grow its asset base and is keen on copper.
