Mchelex’s consultants are frequently commissioned to provide independent professional assessments of mining projects. For example, to support a financial transaction such as debt or equity finance raising, for M & A or to provide an independent professional report to support an IPO.
With many staff with Competent Person / Mineral Expert / Qualified Person status (depending on the jurisdiction) and its wide range of geological and engineering expertise, DMT is uniquely well placed to undertake these assignments, and can cover most aspects of the assessment in‐house.
Mchelex also has considerable experience in acting as Independent Engineer for bank financing of mining projects. Typically these appointments follow after initial due diligence. As Independent Engineer, mchelex will work cooperatively with the project’s design and engineering team, whilst at the same time providing the Lenders with independent review and monitoring, as the project advances to completion and commercial start‐up.
