NR Connect is an invitation only partner network of the Mining Industry’s Online Investment and Communications platform, NR Private Market.
The longer-term vision of NR Connect is to build an ecosystem of partners that are vetted and can support our mining and exploration company issuers. From a partner’s perspective we view this as providing three key outcomes for our partners being; a highly visible presence on NR Private Market, distribution of relevant partner news and content and referral to platform partners where we feel an issuer can benefit from their services. We view our relationship with partners as being wholly symbiotic where we can introduce mining and exploration company issuers to partners should there be a need for them to close a technical gap or enhance their IR/PR reach through our network of specialists and media partners.
On the technical side we are supported by leading mining technical services firms DMT Group, SRK and Wardell Armstrong with drilling services and expertise provided by Capital Drilling who provide full-service drilling solutions to customers within the global minerals industry, focussing on the African markets.
We can bring to bear further support by a network of risk management partners such as S-RM, a global risk consultancy that have unrivalled experience in supporting firms in the oil & gas and metals & mining sectors, leading Lloyds of London Insurance broker Tysersand Quirk Solutions, a firm specialised in pressure testing an organisation’s planning. Quirk Solutions is lead by former Royal Marine Lt. Colonel, Chris Paton who says “Pressure testing can address a range of complex internal and external challenges, including business continuity plans, cyber threats, potential regulatory changes, policy changes, centralisation, acquisitions and investments etc.”
Raising the profile of junior mining companies is equally as important and is often overlooked by management teams. To help support this we have built great relationships with both expert firms such as creative brand communication agency, Invicomm and specialist financial public relations and investor relations agency, Blytheweigh that can advise junior mining and exploration companies on their branding, public and investor relations strategy and with media organisations including Aspermont Media and Proactive Investors that can deliver and distribute a Company’s story to its target audience.
The most important vision of NR Connect is to create a powerful network of independent industry leaders, service providers and innovators. This network is committed to advancing the mining and exploration sector for the good of all participants and will expand to meet the collective needs and objectives of the NR Private Market community.
