Ignatov & Company Group - Mining - Market ResearchIgnatov provides Market Research in Mining since 1998. We have partner relations with natural resources ministries, coal industry ministries, geology survey authorities, licensing authorities, stat offices, custom offices, environmental control bodies, etc, several large state-run and private mining holdings, suppliers of mining machinery, etc. We have abilities to make interviews in local languages, to access governmental and industry sources (such as statistic databases, custom offices’ import and export records, license and certification registers, best-practice-case databases, etc.).

We provide a wide variety of mining information, including (but not limiting with):

  • Geological data
    • Reserves
    • Mineral-bearing properties
    • Mineral quality
    • Mining conditions
    • Tectonics
  • Production (figures, trends, players, locations, etc.)

  • Mineral logistics and transportation
  • Mineral pricing/costs
  • Forecast (for company, region, basin, country level)
