Ten years have passed since the freezing day in November 2008 when Boloroo– as our founder-editor Bolormaa Luntan was affectionately called -- carried copies of the first issue of The Mongolian Mining Journal to distribute them at various sales points.
Boloroo, you are no longer in our living world, but we at the MMJ still think of you as our editor, and believe that you are still writing your incisive articles in your special style. You have gone to another world and will not return, but your presence at the office is still vivid and active.
The Spring days have been busy for us at the Mongolian Mining Journal, but there is a feeling of satisfaction that this working under pressure with new ideas and plans has led to some positive achievements. We would like to share with you information on some projects we have taken up or already completed. Our MMJ team is small but we think big.
