We represent Brazilian mining companies which offer projects for sale or joint venture. We deal with metals such as gold, iron, copper, manganese, bauxite (aluminum), tin (caseterite) and other metals and also offer mining investment opportunities - investors and legitimate lenders are welcome are wanted.

We connect Brazilian gold mining companies developing precious metals and ferrous metals mining projects with potential investors, lenders and joint venture partners from all over the world in order to assist in funding of mining enterprises and developing of the mining industry.

Our clients - mining companies in Brazil - may accept joint venture capital through the establishment of joint ventures with investors. We assist potential buyers to locate a placer or a hard rock mine with the prerequisites they desire. Even if you intend to acquire an operating or a turnkey mine, we can find a property that fits your needs.

Among our clients are both private and public mining companies and exploration companies, in addition to mining property owners. Some are seeking capital, while others are looking for good long term joint venture partners. We select companies and at the same time target properties with quick growth potential that will bring a good appreciation on the investment.

We offer:
  • A strong team of professionals and managers; and
  • Mining properties with proven reserves of gold, silver and other metals, precious and non-precious.
Some of our clients - gold mining companies - are licensed to hallmark gold, silver and platinum bullion. This simplifies the process of the products' certification and accelerates the turnover of capital.

We have all necessary connections established with different professionals and companies in USA, Central and South America, Asia, Russia and countries of the former USSR. We can assist in finding a suitable exploration company, mining operator, managers, staff, certified geologists, translation services, accounting and audit companies.

We believe that the mining industry in Brazil is substantially undervalued by investors, due to the fact that for a long time during and after the Second World War mining has been stopped on most of the mines and the mining industry started its new boom only after the year 2000 when gold prices became extremely attractive for international investors. We believe that prices of precious metals will continue their upward movement; therefore it’s the best time to enter the mining market in Brazil right now.

There are many reasons to invest in mining. You may review some of these reasons on the page Reasons to Invest in Brazil Gold and Metal Mining Companies.

There are 3 types of investment in gold mines in Brazil:


The first one is an investment in a site with geophysical research. Usually the research costs U$ 2 - 10 million and it takes at least a year to complete. When the research result comes as positive, with x amount of tons as "proven reserve", the investment company may purchase the site and decide on the best way to extract the gold. Usually an investment in these type of sites could be well in the tens of millions of US$ or more (depending on the reserve volume).


The second type is an investment in a gold mine with an ongoing operation.
These investments are quite common and their owners want a joint venture or an outright purchase of the project. These sites may require an investment of at least US$ 10 - 60 million due to the fact that they already come with expensive equipment, infrastructure, licenses and installations.

The third type is by far the one that costs the least to get into. A minimum of US$ 2 million is required (this cost does not include a surface rights purchase). The site usually comes with a shallow geophysical report (a report estimating the alluvial volume of the area tested). Some of the areas simply do not come with any research whatsoever.

Then why invest in these sites? The answer is - cost! These sites cost far less to get into and if you follow our tested mine evaluation procedures, chances are that you will not go wrong at all. Here is why:
  • Owners of such sites are just desperate to do business. They will take almost any offer you will bring them.
  • Despite of their "No Research" status, sites of these types have a tremendous potential which you can verify at a very low cost. There are specific procedures which we follow in order to test them. We first look at surface indicators, then at artisanal activity in the past and thereafter we conduct our low cost research by collecting samples from the site. These sites are quite common and the great majority of these projects are very productive. Sites with 2 - 3 grams per ton disseminated throughout the area may fetch 10 - 30 kilos per month if worked properly.
  • Even if you make a mistake and pick the wrong site, there is still an exit strategy which can be activated immediately at little cost for the investor.
This is why getting the right advice is crucial for the success of your gold mining project.

If you are interested in getting started, our company can:
  • Find the right project for you. There is no fee involved here since the owner pays us a commission.
  • If you are an investor, you can JV (49% - 51% for your company) in a few sites we own. US$ 3.6 million is the minimum investment needed.
  • If you are a business broker and want to JV with our company, we can work out an agreement where we share the commission and royalties (see the Brokers Wanted page in this site).
