We focus on four core commodities being copper, gold, hard coking coal and potash. These are the commodities that have the strongest macro outlook and which the EMR team has a proven track record and considerable experience in.
We invest in 100% or majority equity control of an investment – this allows us to most effectively deploy our operational and investment skillset and experience.
We aim to invest in private or take-private operations and assets.
We invest in producing or near production assets.
We invest in operations and assets that meet the EMR criteria of grade, scale, long-life, proven technology/process, low cost (or potential to be low cost), strong upside, stable jurisdictions and clear exit options.
