Reviewed international metals producer's large multimetals project

CRA was asked by a major international metals producer to review and give an independent opinion on their large multimetals project, which, at that time, was at an impasse because of the combination of political and other uncertainties. CRA and our client worked as a team for more than a year to evaluate a broad range of processing choices, timing options, political issues, integration of the new project with existing assets, and a range of associated risks for the project. CRA’s review led to discussions at the Management Committee level upon the merits of relaunching efforts to develop the project. CRA shared with the company views on key strategic issues that they would have to address as a part of restarting this effort.
