The Mineral Corporation understands the critical aspects of the minerals industry. Located in Johannesburg, South Africa, we are a leading advisory firm focused on the provision of geological and mining engineering services. Through our consulting experience and knowledge, we have added and preserved significant value to our clients and their projects at all stages of development. Some recent examples include:
- advice regarding a corporate structure for our client, following a review of mineral assets, led to the listing of those assets with a market capitalisation of approximately US$420 million

- a mine planning review for an underground platinum project saved an estimated US$210 million for our client
- development of a mineralisation model to define an exploration programme identified additional mineralisation resulting in an estimated US$100 million in value to our client
- provision of expert witness testimony assisted our client to rebut a claim of US$240 million
