The article presents an interview with Chip Goodyear, chief executive of BHP Billiton, the world's biggest mining company. Armed with $30 million in shares accrued since joining BHP as CFO, Goodyear tells that he is simply looking for a fresh challenge and not quitting at the top of the commodity-price cycle. He thinks the sectorwide boom will continue, simply because demand, especially from China and India, is outstripping supply for nearly everything BHP Billiton produces. INSET: MENDING HILL.
