M&A strategy

Our corporate M&A strategy is designed to add value to public mining & exploration companies as well as new shell vehicles aiming to create market value in metals-oriented stock markets. Besides our online Mineral Portfolio, we offer tailored-made business proposals upon our clients corporate requirements. 

We also offer a unique asset valuation, finance & market analysis tool for advanced-stage projects, thanks to our Hong-Kong-based partner The Cloud Miner. The tool consists of an online platform that can perform a standard or customized project valuation based on resources/reserves comparison to similar projects located within world-class mining districts. 

 

ASSET NEGOTIATION

Since identifying the right asset can be a time-consuming task, we help building the road map for securing a project overseas. This includes anticipating  the consequent company affiliation process, while avoiding red tape and cultural barriers. Our landing solutions include all components needed to go through the negotiation and acquisition process of a project. Thus, we offer essential legal advice to our clients thanks to our in-house legal team based in Santiago, Chile.
