Metals & Mining

Dig deeper into your data.

Answers to the important questions

through our Ossian platform.

We help you understand the mining industry better than anyone else. Dig deeper into the data and stay one step ahead of the competition. Be the first to know where the next business opportunity will come from.

Brainnwave and Ossian are bringing new technology to insight generation in the mining sector.

You can create a market outlook for the mining sector specific to your own business in minutes; identify where investment is forecast and discover new opportunities before your competitors know they are there.

How can we create long-term views for senior management to plan?

With Ossian long-terms planning views are easy. For example, you can view the top 5 countries in each of your regions, the top players in those countries and then drill down into their assets.

You can find aggregate data in regions relative to how your business defines a region. We can show aggregate production by commodity ($ and weight/volume), production by country ($ and weight/volume) and we can identify top producers by commodity/country.

All this and we can also help to develop forward projections of these metrics.

How can we produce a list of all of the mines in Africa which may need our product or service?

With Ossian you can set the algorithm ranking parameters based on business specific criteria (e.g. debt ratio <50%, capex &mt;$300m, mine stage = expansion etc).

You can run those algorithms to give a ranked list from most likely opportunity to least likely.

From there you can sum up the market potential of the top 50 opportunities and overlay internal resource plans to align with the most valuable opportunities.

This all allows you to make investment decisions in minutes based on trusted data.

How do we produce a list of all Canadian mines not connected to a grid?

Ossian's map view allows you to easily overlay spatial data of all power grids with geolocation of mines.

You can then set a parameter to only show opportunities more than 20km from a power network.

How do we show detail on exploration projects in Mexico?

Ossian's map view allows you to filter the project stage parameter to exploration and run a search.

You can view a list of results or view them on the map and overlay key infrastructure data (e.g. road networks, power networks).

From there you can also drill-down into each project for further information and contacts.

How do we show all the mines in Western North America with all relevant details?

Ossian allows you to view as much data as you require. Things like type of mine, age of mine, proposed new mines, % that don’t have a high line, project stage, operator and owner debt ratio and commodities mined.

All of these can be viewed as lists, on maps or filtered and exported as required.
