Tumazos’s methodology and analysis differs from sell-side research in the following ways:
NETWORK OF INDUSTRY CONTACTS
TMMR has an unparalleled network of C-Suite and industry contacts in the metals and mining sector globally. On a first name basis with CEOs and CFOs, TMMR also speaks frequently with geologists, engineers, prospectors, and mining technology specialists.
GEOLOGICAL & GEO-TECHNICAL EXPERTISE
TMMR uses primary research to analyze the geological factors and geo-technical statistics to identify a successful mining operation.
PROPRIETARY INVESTMENT CRITERIA
TMMR follows a strict set of criteria for mining operations prior to issuing a recommendation. This includes assets with defined mineralization, assets with over $3B of in situ mineralization, and geo-technical research indicating greater future potential.
ON SITE VISITS
TMMR does not rely on corporate publications, but backs up findings with on-site visits to mines globally. Recent trips include mining site visits to Africa, South America, Indonesia, Australia, Northern Canada, and across the US.
IDENTIFICATION OF TAKE-OUT TARGETS
Since 2007, TMMR has identified and hosted at its conferences over 84 mining companies that have been taken out for a total of US $66 billion – and this at a significant premium for investors holding the names.
EXPERIENCE IN UNDERSTANGING COMMODITY CYCLES
TMMR has lived through numerous commodity cycles and understands how to select assets that are protected in the downturn, and how to excel when the cycle surges.
TMMR is aligned with you, our buy-side client, and our independence allows us to make bold calls when warranted.
