We are calling it. Vancouver is the mining capital of the world with over 800 miners and juniors headquartered in the city.

Counted are companies that are publicly-traded and active as of November 2017. Data is based on Mining Intelligence's tracking of several thousand mining and junior companies worldwide. List does not include suppliers, consultancies or private companies.

No surprise that Toronto is second and Perth is third.

Left off the list is several US cities like New York, Denver and Salt Lake City that had mining headquarters numbering in the single digits.

Is there a city we didn't consider? Is there a better measure to choose the world's mining capital? Let us know in the comments, and we will update.
