James McClements, Managing Partner

As a specialist in mining, Resource Capital Funds regularly observes the benefits that our trusted partnership brings to portfolio companies. We have proven many times over the value of not just being an investor but a patient advisor with extensive industry experience.

We often work with companies which have known assets, yet possess limited capital but have the depth of technical capabilities to develop the asset into cash flow. It has been encouraging to see that even despite the downturn in the mining industry in recent times we are still observing positive progress across a range of our portfolio companies. Essentially this has been because we have been able to identify assets with upside potential prior to investing, despite weak market conditions, and then work with the company over the long term to realize the potential of their project.

This month we have published a case study on Firestone Diamonds, an African diamond developer with its flagship asset in Lesotho, Africa. Firestone Diamonds is under construction and has been supported by RCF throughout the process. We are able to support construction activities with insight from our Denver-based Senior Project Director, Allan Brownrigg, as well as the Senior Partner, responsible for a significant team with specialist technical skills, Ryan Bennett, which is integral in RCF’s technical and due diligence offering.
