It takes more than just crushing, beneficiation or even refining to operate a mining or processing concern profitably.
Since its establishment in 1997, Minalysis has developed a reputation for identifying cost saving and revenue enhancing strategies between the mine gate and market by working harmoniously with producers, consumers, traders and financiers.
We remain objective and impartial.
Therefore we are able to reveal transparencies in transactions that are often obscured.
Minalysis' successful development commenced from an identified niche, which demonstrated that consulting and contracting services in the mining industry need not be constrained to technical services such as geology, metallurgy and construction.
Minalysis recognised that, historically, many small to medium sized operators consigned the marketing and commercial aspects of the operation (mine gate to
market) to trading companies, agents and/or financiers, often on the basis of receiving development funding and working capital facilities.
Minalysis began by providing a broad range of marketing and commercial services from product evaluation and customer identification through to contract negotiation,
logistics implementation, risk management, systems design, marketing and administrative support and project management and fundraising advisory services.
Ongoing success, market demand and client requirements resulted in Minalysis' expansion in 2003 to include further areas of high-level support for senior
management and companies' boards. These services now fall into two distinct divisions:
Minalysis clearly gives its clients the ability to utilise specialist corporate, marketing, financial and commercial skills without unnecessarily or prematurely
relinquishing control over their companies or products. This fact is not lost on organisations that understand that exceptional corporate governance and the maximisation of shareholder value are equally important as the product quality assurance chain.
