S&P Capital IQ Pro platform: Delivers critical intelligence on mining companies and mining assets

Identify opportunities. Find distressed or quality mining assets.

  • Screen mining projects by regions, development stage, project size and the mine life cycle to identify potential opportunities. Drill-down into asset level data (such as reserves/resources/grades, feasibility study results, production output/operating/cash costs, etc) to find quality mining assets. View all source documentation for due-diligence reviews and connect data to your models.
  • Assess the company financial health performance with key financial data such as cash flow, debt, capital structure, and institutional ownership, etc. Understand the asset level ownership by reviewing joint ventures or transactions, directors, ability to raise capital and complete project funding based on current and historical activity.
  • Act when the time is right. Set up a portfolio to monitor changes and create Alerts for opportunities on your Watch List.

Evaluate the value of mining assets. Benchmark financial performance.

  • Compare mining transactions against a 15+ year history with details on the buyer/seller, deal value, interest acquired, structure of deal, price paid per reserve unit, average price paid etc. Gain deeper insights by filtering data by deal size, resource size, location, type of asset, mining style, production output and cash costs, etc.
  • Benchmark the cost-competitiveness of targeted mine with mine cost forecasts up to 2040. Integrate all-in costs, cash flow analysis (DCF, NPV, IRR) into your valuation model at the mine and company level. Analyze the projected mine costs, cash flows, NAV calculations and create customized cost forecasts based on your own input assumptions (e.g. metal prices, energy costs, fuel prices, etc).
  • Conduct comprehensive company analysis by incorporating key data (such as market performance, institutional owners, debt, projected cash flow, enterprise value, capital structure, major shareholders, key executives, PE ratio’s, enterprise value ratios, etc) to benchmark and evaluate financial performance.

  • Monitor drilling results as announced to the market. Compare key metrics (such as grade x width, interval, depth, etc) and identify hot spots based on significant drill results. Perform radius searches using current and historical parameters to identify future opportunities. Create a portfolio of projects and companies to receive email alerts and monitor updates.
  • Gain unique insights into the exploration sector with our monthly Industry Monitor reports to keep track of pipeline activity index, significant financings, global drilling activity and resource announcements.
