Invest in the future of mining

Mining Investment Showcase

Cornwall’s mining history is legendary. But the most significant opportunities lie ahead.  

If you’re looking to invest in high-tech metal exploration, Cornwall has a wealth of potential. The region’s outstanding natural environment is one of the most highly mineralised areas in the UK. There’s an abundance of high-grade lithium, tin, copper and tungsten ready to be mined here – in one of the most stable mining environments in the world. This, along with its world-class china clay operations and rich history of mining, quarrying and mineral processing, makes Cornwall a prime location for the exploration and extraction of technology metals to meet the increasing global demand, fuelling a cleaner, greener future.  

On June 10th – in association with Cornwall House and the G7 Summit – an event will be premiered showcasing a range of live investment opportunities in Cornwall’s mining companies. Featuring businesses who are leading the way in environmentally responsible mineral exploration and extraction – for the metals that are crucial to future energy demands, and a more sustainable future.
