Mining - Company Intelligence

 

Ignatov & Company Group - Mining - Company IntelligenceIgnatov provides Company Intelligence 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.).

In addition to common information (company’s financials, organization, management, etc.) we provide industry-specific intelligence on mining companies, such as:

  • Reserves (commercial, prospective)
  • Geological features of the deposits
  • Surface and underground mining facilities
  • Mining machinery fleet
  • Mining technologies and methods
  • Processing facilities (washing, enrichment)
  • Safety
  • Environmental issues, etc.

Mining - Foresight

 

Ignatov & Company Group - Mining - ForesightWe provide Foresight services in Mining since 1998 – with emphasis in Market & Industry, Technology, and Problem-Specific Foresight.

ICG uses a wide range of the Foresight techniques – such as expert panels, Delphi method, strategic analysis/planning methods (SWOT, PEST, STEER, EPISTEL, etc.), brainstorming, scenario analysis and planning, causal layered analysis (CLA), morphological analysis and cross-consistency assessment, relevance trees, systems engineering, etc.

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 expert interviews in local languages.

To overcome foresight methods' major limitations (such as ignoring of the minor opinions frequently presenting the “creative” approach not shared with the majority of the experts; experts’ “conformism”; organizational challenges at large expert group management, etc.) we actively use such advanced methods as chaos theory, catastrophe theory, tensor analysis, graphs theory, game theory, case based reasoning (CBR), genetic algorithms, etc. in our Foresight projects.
