From Africa, Australia or Europe, raw material mines can be found all over the world in great variety. We consider robust due diligence as a crucial part of the investment process, especially gaining a clear picture of the specific target company, the geological circumstances, the environment and local management team. That is why we do not believe in “desk-top” evaluations but in direct contact to local management, on-site evaluations and close monitoring to understand project feasibility, profitability and local circumstances throughout the investment process.
As part of the investment process we are on-site; initially analysing soil conditions with our international team of geologists and later monitoring of the production process of the mines. We take particular interest in building lasting relationships with the local community, protection of the environment and sustainable production processes. We place close attention to working conditions in the mines and in local management’s ability to deal with upcoming challenges.
