The ability to access capital markets for debt, equity and hybrid products is fundamental to any mining company continuing to fund its growth strategy. Our team has significant experience in advising on all aspects of capital markets transactions.

Financial models are an integral part of the business decision-making process, enabling mining companies to assess the financial implications of commercial decisions with confidence. The construction of a robust financial model is the cornerstone of accurate, informed and timely commercial decision making and forecasting.

Internal audits are a valuable risk mitigation strategy. They provide assurance that your mining organisation’s frameworks, policies, practices, and processes are effective, and actively seek out gaps and areas for improvement. This makes it possible to identify and eliminate barriers to success and optimise operational efficiency for greater productivity and cost savings.

Using RSM’s state-of-the-art proprietary tools, we provide a comprehensive outsourced internal audit solution including planning, risk assessment, reporting, and issue tracking and resolution.

At RSM, we have specialists who can work with your junior exploration company to develop and implement robust financial due diligence processes. We can support you with the design of easily understood and measured financial management KPIs, and help you implement clear and meaningful financial reporting.

RSM has extensive experience working with junior mining exploration companies to deliver well-planned automation strategies and solutions that deliver real results.
