Mining & Refining

Mining plays an integral role in all our lives, providing the raw materials that are essential to so many products and services. However, mining comes with its own unique set of legal, environmental, health and safety challenges. Operations are susceptible to all kinds of risks such as equipment failures, natural disasters, third-party negligence, civil unrest, fires, explosions and other operational hazards.

Given the global spread of the major mining companies’ operations, the resulting damages and losses can affect the operations of many facilities, both upstream and downstream.
