Rising optimism for Africa's mining industry

There have been some glimmers of hope for Africa's mining industry recently as some commodity prices are looking a lot better.

One of the world's most diversified miners operating on the continent is India-based Vedanta Resources, extracing copper, zinc, aluminium, lead and iron ore.

The BBC's Matthew Davies sat down with Vedanta's chairman, Anil Agarwal, to find out more for Africa Business Report.
