Benzu Minerals (Pty) Ltd is a minerals exploration consultancy registered in South Africa. We provide an outsourced management service to mineral exploration companies wishing to explore for minerals in Africa. Our service is tailored to the needs of the client, from planning and executing limited exploration programmes and due diligences, all the way to full turnkey solutions where we execute a comprehensive mineral exploration programme from project inception to advanced stages of exploration. In many cases we have been able to assist with identifying license areas and making the necessary applications in conjunction with our clients creating immediate value for our clients and their shareholders.
Our experience spans a large variety of commodities: diamonds, gold, iron ore, base metals, nickel, bauxite, manganese, potash and REE; in some 40 African countries and with a unique mind-set for assessing, very early on in the exploration project life, the upside potential of a discovery. The strength of the Benzu Minerals team is in the diversity and completeness of its members. Each member brings to the enterprise a unique set of competences: some of the members are “pure” geoscientists and explorers, amongst the best in their field, while others offer their finest knowledge in Government relations and a wide network of resources in Africa.
Our technical skills and hands-on experience in how to explore and develop minerals projects in the African environments will ensure the success of our clients and maximise the return on their investment, especially in the risky early phases of exploration.
