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.

With the additional monies secured, X2 has amassed up to $4.8bn of funds including $3.3bn of committed equity capital and $1.5bn of conditional equity capital.

"We will build on the team’s unparalleled track record of acquiring and integrating assets and supporting the management teams of acquired businesses to create value."

The company did not reveal the details of the new investors.

X2 raised $3.75bn in March this year from five investors, including Hong Kong-based commodities trader Noble Group, private equity firm TPG Capital and sovereign-wealth and pension-fund investors, reported Bloomberg.

Davis, who left Xstrata last year after the company was taken over by Glencore, aims to build X2 into a diversified mining and metals company, offering a range of commodities including copper, coal and other minerals.

In addition to Davis, the X2 team also includes former Xstrata finance director Trevor Reid and executives Thras Moraitis, Andrew Latham and Ian Pearce.
