Much of the Earth’s wealth is buried beneath the surface. Gold, silver, oil, and many other resources are only accessed through mining, causing the mining industry to be extremely lucrative. As commodities, especially the metals, grow in value, mining companies are poised for substantial growth. A couple of the more promising mining stocks include Newmont Mining (NYSE:NEM) and Rio Tinto (NYSE:RIO). Invest in mining stocks and you too may strike gold.
