Hi erickonghl,
Would this be with you having the financial 
statements already and you are wanting to know
how to extract information from them?

Or do you want to know how and where to find
the financial statement info for the mining
companies? Do you have particular company(s)
in mind?

Some news regarding financial results
for SOG:

 ^ you might have to look for SOG there ^
This is Yahoo Finance info regarding SGW.AX

[ ]
Research shows a hold to moderate buy

Yahoo news links re: SGW.AX

That would be some of the info you need to
use in valuation of the mining company
Sons of Gwalia for investing.

Here are some links now to learn valuation:

FTC info:

And here is a rather nice page that specifically
mentions 'Mining Company Valuation Data Requirements'
I think its for the purchasing of the mining company
though... but the info to look for is relevant.

You can also let someone else research for you

A sample of places that could possibly do that for you:

I hope I provided the info you were
looking for. Actual valuation will
require you to have some financial
education, and a good background of
investment knowledge.
