We can assist you with acquisitions, equity and project financing, and IPOs, and can provide the intimate knowledge that you need to produce balanced and focused independent reviews and reports.

Each project has its own characteristics and unique risk areas, which requires the attention of experienced study managers to efficiently allocate and coordinate resources to produce balanced and focused independent reviews and reports.

As an independently owned company with no equity in any project, our impartial advice is widely accepted by the international banking and investment community and a wide range of mining clients. Our experienced consultants are often requested by finance institutions to conduct due diligence audits of ore reserves, mining assessments and environmental considerations for inclusion into prospectuses for stock exchange listings as well as for sale and purchase agreements, and valuations. We also act as expert witnesses on mining related litigation issues.

We know what it takes for an independent project review to provide assurance, highlight the areas of risk, and provide clients with the necessary real, defensible project information to meet the standards of the investment community.
