WASMA Podcast Episode 18 Joe McDiarmid Mining Investment

Boom and bust are common words when people refer to mining or oil and gas. But there’s actually a fairly predictable mining cycle – starting with explorers finding new leads… green shoots as investors dip their toes back in… early success as projects are proven… and mine sites begin to be built. And then there’s the investment and mysterious merger and acquisition phase where secret deals are done, investors jostle to put money in, companies divest assets that are no longer part of their grand plan, and small mining companies are taken out by bigger ones. Joe McDiarmid, is an experienced mining engineer from WASMA with RPM Global and he understands the true value of a mining project is critical to both the parties trying to sell themselves and the astute buyer who wants value for money.
