Accessing funding, opportunities for investment, and mitigating risk

What is the outlook for mine finance in Africa? How can companies in the region, and international investors, mitigate risks, access funding opportunities, and drive growth?

Watch the 'Mine Finance Panel' video in which we explore these questions, and more, including:

  • Maximising value and identifying hidden risk;
  • the stand out Environmental, Social and Governmental considerations on the availability of finance and royalty deals for African mining projects;
  • financing in a post COVID-19 world and executing effective due diligence in this environment;
  • exploring where alternative finance providers can find value and quality projects, and if the market is becoming more competitive;
