CIC Mining Resources has entered into a memorandum of understanding with China Railway Materials Commercial Company (CRM) to provide integrated rail and port services.

The services offered by CRM include sourcing and supplying materials and equipment, conducting feasibility studies, and the design and management of railway and port construction, according to CIC Mining.

CRM will provide clients of CIC Mining with a free scoping study that will form a summary of the basic rail and port infrastructure needs for a project.

CIC Mining chairman and CEO Stuart Bromley said the association is of critical importance in bringing potential mining projects into production within China and the wider mining markets.
