We explore for rare minerals, like Tantalum, through holding majority stakes in junior mining companies or joint ventures. Our team controls and manages all of our projects direct. We operate in a social responsible way.
Our Company acquires and holds majority shareholdings in junior mining and mineral trading businesses in under developed geographical areas, mainly in Africa. The focus is on rarer minerals like Tantalum and precious metals like Gold that can be extracted with low cost mining operations.
We believe that the long-term global macroeconomic outlook is positive for the global metals, mining and resources sector. We further believe that the underlying supply and demand fundamentals of the minerals that the Company focus on are compelling, given limited new supply coming on-line and production cutbacks by high cost mining operations against the background of demand from the industrialisation of emerging economies.
