Afghanistan: The Next Frontier
Gold is among the minerals to be found in lightly-explored sections of Afghanistan, according to a report by the New York Times.

An opinion compendium by This Week also includes some skeptical pieces, but it provides a good listing of reports and comments on what may be the next frontier in mining.
