Rise of digital finance: Tokenising mining & metals assets

Rapid advances in blockchain technology are reinventing the way companies operate and deliver products and services to their clients.

These changes are particularly visible in the mining & metals industry, a sector that has been traditionally slow in adopting technological innovations.

Miners face a persistently challenging environment to raise equity and equity-like capital to fund ventures. According to the State of Mining Finance 2019 Report produced by the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada and junior financing tracker Oreninc, funds raised via equity in 2018 were at the lowest recorded level in the past decade, with equity funding dropping approximately 40 per cent from 2017 to 2018.
