Sydney, NSW (May 13, 2016)
Speaking of this achievement, Philippe Baudry, Executive General Manager – Advisory said “We could not be prouder of the achievements of our entire Australian Advisory team. The drop in commodity prices has been steeper and has gone on for longer than anyone in the industry anticipated. Mining companies have done a remarkable job of reducing their cost of production. However, much of the low and medium hanging fruit in this space has now been picked from the tree.”
“As a supplier to the industry, we have focused on being a provider of genuine technical capability and delivering a high quality offering rather than simply capacity and have invested heavily in integrating our Advisory expertise with our industry-leading software solutions to ensure we provide the best possible level of service and optimised and practicable outcomes for our clients.”
Through the delivery of services to our customers – predominately mining companies and the financial services industry – as well as active engagement in key industry bodies – Austmine, AUSIMM and the Sydney Mining Club – RPM has not only illustrated their commitment to the NSW Minerals industry but to the entire mining ecosystem. Daniel Peel, RPM’s General Manager Advisory Sales for Australasia is the Chair of the Sydney branch of AUSIMM and Richard Mathews, RPM’s CEO, is a Board member of the Federal Governments Mining Equipment Technology and Services Growth Centre (METS Ignite).
RPM’s active engagement is evidenced in the wide use of RPM’s mine planning and costing software in many of NSW’s major mining assets, our advisory services support of the development of new and existing operations and our involvement in investor-related activities in the NSW resource sector.
This year’s NSW Mining Industry and Suppliers Conference is a meeting of like-minded mining companies and service providers which provides a chance for discussion and collaboration during such challenging economic times. RPM’s Simon Askey-Doran is involved in a panel discussion at the conference today based on the challenges and opportunities in supplying products and services to the minerals industry.
Mr Baudry concluded by saying “RPM’s internationally renowned Advisory team prides itself on being active members of the industry and an example of how innovative operating practices can ensure resilience in such a tough market. Our advisory team of technical mining experts focus intently on delivering the RPM Global Advisory Advantage – a tailored, mining industry workhorse powered to partner with clients to unlock latent capability from mining operations and to provide judicious investment advice for investment clients.”
