Corporate and financial public relations advice for mineral exploration and mining companies
Our dedicated team has unrivalled experience advising clients from grass-root explorers to multi-asset, producing FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 companies.
Exploration and development companies
We are experienced in providing the specific communications services required along a project’s timeline from initial drilling, to resource definition, to economic studies and fund raisings along the way.
Our experience working for all sizes of mineral producers spans multiple sub-sectors including precious metals and gems, steel making materials, as well as energy materials.
Traders and data providers
Thanks to our knowledge of the markets, we understand the important role traders and providers of information play in the space. We can therefore offer effective communication strategies to this unique segment of the overall minerals sector.
We are the media partner of choice for some of the world’s major mining conferences including Mines & Money and the Natural Resources Forum.
And, because mining is a truly global business, we have affiliated public relations offices around the world renowned for their mining expertise.
