Colossus Mining is the brainchild of a team of experts dedicated to making mining operations more efficient and sustainable. We use unique patented technology to identify pragmatic solutions that don’t require substantial investment or business process change, but create real efficiencies and offer a platform for future growth.

We deliver client-specific, real-time business intelligence to improve the optimisation, strategic development and management of physical commodity sales contracts for mining operators so that they can better calculate the expected sales revenue of their mine in an increasingly volatile market.

Our aim is to become the leader in delivering a bespoke modelling tool to the Junior Mining sector. Combining breakthrough technology and data analytics, Colossus Mining will empower Junior Mining companies to enter into more informed contractual negotiations with smelters and marketing companies, and will also prove beneficial to those looking to engage in corporate finance.
