X Series 2 inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) machine to analyze copper concentrate samples inside the Central Geological Laboratory in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, on Saturday, June 21, 2014. Mongolia's Vice Minister for Mining Erdenebulgan Oyun said mining law amendments would increase Mongolia's area available to mining and exploration to 20 percent from around 8 percent, by lifting a 2010 ban on new licenses. The period of exploration would also increase from nine years to 12 years. Photographer: Brent Lewin/Bloomberg via Getty ImagesBrent Lewin — Bloomberg via Getty Images
