Macallum has the skills and experience to identify, evaluate and develop a broad range of resource opportunities and to operate in many countries. Base metals, precious metals, bulk mineral commodities, oil and gas are the principal targets but high value projects of other commodities are also assessed on an opportunistic basis. It believes that the optimum risk to reward balance is to be found near the front of the discovery to development process and that it has the experience to identify and realise project value that is under-appreciated or trapped and to do this quickly.To date Macallum has reviewed several hundred projects around the world, has made offers on a selection of these with agreements in place covering a select few of these.
