Mining companies compete in an industry without borders — their issues are both wide and deep. For those with global operations, an understanding of the culture and an ability to draw on local resources can make the difference between a smooth, satisfactory transaction and one that’s fraught with complications. To deal with commodity price and exchange rate fluctuations, mining companies need risk management skills and deep financial expertise. To address environmental and compliance issues, they must know how to manage sleeping dragons like inactive mines, and the intricacies of corporate reporting — not to mention new CEO/CFO certification requirements.

Our network of industry specialists helps facilitate new investments and address the evolving challenges of running a national or global mining business.
