Back to your question
Diversification is mostly driven by a risk/reward approach at the portfolio global level.
Hence each single investment decision has to pass through this complex matrix
Our strategy started with our first asset acquired back in August 2017 composed of a world class bauxite mine (production to start at Q3 2019) ,
we then accelerated our development through gold and diamond exploration permits smartly identified and providing a good potential of discovery of some new deposits ,
and lately we are getting our footprint into the future with battery metals(e.g Nickel, Cobalt and lately Manganese).
For all these mining assets our objective is to identify the best ever technical and financial partners to develop those projects from exploration to exploitation .
