Excellent column.
Where can I (we readers) find maps that might depict the locations of these proposed railways?
And the locations of new mineral resources.
What kind of infrastructure has been developed for the OYU TOLGOI mine region.
10,000 reportedly employed at this mine now.
Where do they live?
What preparations for utilities have been made and or done in the past few years?
Public transportation, public utilities, streets, sewers, water electricity.
How about housing in the region, not only for the mine employess but the peripheral businesses, waste disposal, recycling facilities ( a great etrepeneurial opportunity for an energetic Mongolian). The time to establish these effortsd is yesterday.
Recycle, aluminum, paper, plastic, glass, and metals.
Just thinking outlaoud.

thanks for the precious info.
Where can I find the news about the tender (or the general follows-up) for this argument?
