The mining industry is complex and requires industry specific professionals.

We understand the unique exposures of mining risks and the potential for sizable losses, so our team’s experience is critical to the needs of your valued clients. We provide a depth of knowledge and have formed long-term relationships with key decision-makers in the sector.

What Makes Us Different
  • Respect from Markets – We negotiate with markets as equals, including the ability to negotiate required form changes with expert knowledge of pricing.
  • Experienced Coverage Negotiations – We have the knowledge of what to include in a policy as it relates to specific mining operations, which means clarity in claims negotiations.
  • Quick Turnaround – We save you time because markets trade with us on many accounts.
  • Access to Industry Experts – We have extensive networks that you can use for claims, valuations, or engineering. This results in your client getting the best people for their needs.
  • Up-to-Date Market Knowledge – We can create a clear marketing plan, versus learning as you go. This results in the benefit of a better-structured program.
