Mining Mega Trends and Their Impact to your Organisation's Resilience

Numerous mega trends are impacting the mining industry, making an effective resilience program more important than ever to ensure that operations continue as intended. From ESG considerations, through to the use of advanced technologies such as Internet of Things devices, AI, and digital twins, as well as workplace safety, volatility in commodity markets, and the spectre of Covid-19 still looming. Each mega trend has a different impact that needs managing correctly, with a one-size-fits-all approach insufficient. This white paper identifies the mega trends affecting mining businesses, while exploring the opportunities, risks, and implications for operational resilience, with expert insight from Dynamiq on the best practices and approaches to improve business outcomes.

The LOI has an exclusivity period of 90 days to complete due diligence and finalise a JV to advance the tin project.

However, the firms also highlighted that the possibility of a binding agreement is still uncertain.

Orosur said: “Both parties will work diligently to complete JV negotiations within the 90 day period and announce full details at that time however given the non-binding nature of the LOI, shareholders should note that there is no guarantee that a binding agreement will be entered into.”

Orosur will have the option to spend $3m in two stages to earn a stake of up to 75% in the mining concessions owned by Meridian subsidiary Meridian Mineração Jaburi over a four-year period.

In the initial stage, the Canadian firm will invest $1m over a two-year period to earn a 51% stake in the project.

With further spending of $2m, the firm will have the option to earn an additional 24% over the subsequent two years under stage II.

The Ariquemes project comprises an extensive land package in Brazil’s second-largest tin field.

Meridian Mining expects the proposed partnership with Orosur to allow it to maintain its strategic focus on the Cabaçal Cu-Au Project.

Meridian Mining CEO and president Dr Adrian McArthur said: “Ariquemes is prospective for tin, columbite, and tantalite, and is a strong ‘brownfields’ project, hosting extensions to known mining centres partly concealed by a shallow veneer of younger sediments.

“The first generation of tin mines in Ariquemes was the result of surface discoveries, there is excellent potential for the next generation of discoveries through exploration success targeting from blind or shallow occurrences.”
