Metals financial intelligence group SNL has acquired fellow mining intelligence group IntierraRMG.
According to SNL the new company will be named SNL Metals & Mining, and will be focused on becoming a ‘one stop shop’ for data to support the global mining industry’s decision making.
“Following the enhancements SNL has made to its mining information platform in the past year, the addition of IntierraRMG marks yet another major step forward in the information we can deliver to clients,” Jason Goulden, SNL Metals & Mining director, stated
“We plan to integrate our two databases and support IntierraRMG's other business lines that are new to SNL, including strategic consulting, region-specific conferences and educational seminars.”
“By combining product offerings, SNL’s clients will have the best of both companies’ individual product solutions under one service,” Peter Rossdeutscher, CEO of IntierraRMG, added.
The new company will now focus on providing mining claims data across more than 60 countries, looking at coal and other commodities, with coverage of early stage assets.
This acquisition also now gives SNL an expanded global footprint, with offices now in Perth, Stockholm, Calgary, Vancouver, and Toronto.
