Letter from the editor: our new social media offerings

TEXT SIZE bigger text smaller text

To further engage you, our readers, and reach out to new ones, we’re taking a more active presence in social media, and tweaking some of the ways we provide stories on the web to non-subscribers.

Our regular online subscribers should know that we now allow non-subscribers past our pay wall to read one article per week for free. So if you’re a subscriber, and you’d like to forward a web link to an interesting story to a friend or colleague who’s not a subscriber, that option is now available to you. (The story can be viewed just once that week, though — if the non-subscriber even reloads the story, he or she will be locked out of it for a week.)

Our main Twitter feed - with almost 3,000 loyal followers and growing daily - is at On this feed, we’ll send you the headlines and links to our daily and weekly web stories, the latest job postings from, and anything else we think might interest you mining-wise. On top of that, various TNM staffers have their own Twitter feeds accessible at our homepage

And, as always, a subscriber is free to set up “alerts” on our website, so that if a particular commodity, company or other term that interests you is written about, an email is sent to you.

Another way to get at our stories in an interactive way is through our new Facebook page at, where we have almost 2,500 “Likes” (For any old timers: that’s pretty good).

Again, a subscriber can forward to a non-subscriber one of our tweets or Facebook posts that link to one of our stories, and the non-subscriber will be able to read one story a week for free.

If you haven’t seen our Twitter or Facebook pages yet, please give them a try, and let us know what you think. And if you want to get at our stories as soon as possible, they always appear first on our homepage before later being tweeted or posted to Facebook.

Thanks for reading our newspaper, and we value your continued support in the digital realm.
