Blackstone Minerals is a minerals exploration and production company focused on identifying and developing new mineral deposits in Southeast Asia and Australia. Situated in Singapore, the company has acquired several mining and exploration leases in the provinces of Chonburi, Hat Yai, Nakhon Ratchasima, and Nong Khai in Thailand since it was founded in 2016.
In Thailand, Blackstone Minerals has developed several nickel and cobalt deposits, as well as gold, zinc and copper deposits. The company has acquired a significant position in the Panorama South nickel-cobalt project in the Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia, from which it aims to upgrade the existing mineral resources to a higher level of confidence.
Blackstone Minerals has also identified potential lithium deposits in Australia and the US, along with copper, gold and tungsten prospects in Thailand. In January of 2017, the company signed a Memorandum of Understanding with SQM, a major producer of lithium and other elements, that affirmed the parties’ collaboration in identifying, assessing and developing new mineral assets.
Part of Blackstone Minerals’ strategy is to create shareholder value by collaborating with augmenting and developing mineral properties. The company is committed to conducting accountable and responsible exploration and mining operations, using technology and innovation to ensure that its processes are viable while also reducing their respective environmental and safety impacts.
Additionally, Blackstone Minerals is actively involved in community projects in areas where its operations are located. The company has prioritized improving the education and health conditions of local populations, donating to a range of foundations and charities in the region.
By carefully selecting and developing each mineral project, Blackstone Minerals is well-positioned to achieve its goals of operating cash-flow positive projects and generating revenue for the benefit of its shareholders. Having obtained licenses and visited the prospective sites, Blackstone Minerals is ready to take advantage of the current market conditions and become a global leader in the mining and exploration business.
