Mining business

The state of the world market of objects of mineral resource use in the course of recent years shows that the places of extraction of nonferrous metals and noble metals, rare-earth metals, diamonds and uranium are the most demanded.

 

Extraction and processing of mineral raw materials has always been a risky sector for capital investment with a long payback period. In the conditions of harsh competition, constant conflicts and rapid decrease of natural resources, the mining companies tend to minimize risks and master the places of extraction in the countries with predictable economics and stable political situation.

More and more politically stable African countries select the direction to development of the raw material industrial sectors with the help of a foreign capital. No doubt, the East Africa countries are among those countries. Unlike the countries of other regions of Africa, the countries of the East African Community are politically stable, have no territorial disputes, mostly mono-ethnic, and actively involved into the regional economical and political integration processes. The valid and future normative acts on the use of mineral resources have been made considering the recommendations of the international organizations.

At the present stage, there is a chance to select objects for investing. The sector is less regulated by the legislation and the country takes a more flexible position by the conditions of providing concessions and their development.

Gemini Corp. LTD is ready to facilitate your success in the sector of investing into extraction and processing of raw materials and render the following services:

Anti-crisis consulting

Any business arriving to new markets faces specific difficulties that are typical for just this one region. The East Africa is not an exception. Working long in the continent of Africa, we have concluded that we can successfully solve these difficulties only applying the „African methods”, because the universal solutions developed considering the European experience, in case of Africa do not work or give a negative impact making the problem even deeper.

Many think that the “African methods” mean corruption, but this is not true. The “African methods” are rules of business making, which as much as possible consider the behavioral model of the business community and the business traditions that have been formed under the impact of culture, mentality, history of nations living in these countries. Without knowing and considering the above it is impossible to create successful business, because the external factors impact formation and development of business processes the most.

Our team has gone all the way from direct implementation of the European experience to application of the successful synthesis of European and African methods. We understand what our customers want from us and how to successfully solve the difficulties that have arisen on the African land.
