Asian Mining

ASIAN MINING (formerly AJM RESOURCES PUBLISHING) was established in 1986 by marketing and media entrepreneur Geoffrey Gold to launch the Australian Journal of Mining. The following year, the Singapore-based Asia Pacific Mining magazine was acquired and merged with AJM to create the Australia, Asian and Pacific Journal of Mining and its companion annual, the Asia/Pacific Mining Yearbook.
In 1993, AJM was unbundled to re-establish the Australian Journal of Mining and the Asian Journal of Mining as separate publications.

In Indonesia, ASIAN MINING developed a series of special publications in association with the Ministry of Mines and Energy including the Indonesian Mining Handbook and the Indonesian Minerals Exploration and Mining Directory.

In 1998, the Australian Journal of Mining and the AJM trademark in Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea were sold to Informa plc (IBC Australia). ASIAN MINING retained the AJM trademark in all other territories and continues to publish the Asian Journal of Mining.
