Ernst
& Young
.

In its quarterly mining review, E&Y found that AIM mining stocks were hit
as shareholders looked for less risky investments.

E&Y said it was concerned that the sector was unable to raise finance for

projects put on hold or companies entering administration.

the target of a takeover.
