Utah ranks ninth out of the top 10 in the list of the world’s best investment regions for mining, according to an annual survey of 449 mining executives released by the Fraser Institute – an independent, non-partisan Canadian policy think tank.

Nevada and Alaska were the only other U.S. states to make the top 10.
