Approach

We integrate a design thinking approach,
which relies heavily on end-user feelings and feedbacks, in all our strategies.

Private Equity – Natural Resources

The goal of the private equity section is to bring together developers of advanced stage resource (mining or  oil and gas) projects with capital providers to deliver appropriate “last mile” finance for building out the project. We focus on “asset” oriented, rather than straight equity funding, offering creative and efficient, as well as non-dilutive, capital for the industry. 

Private Equity

Blue Lakes can offer smaller firms, which may be unable to get traction from more traditional capital sources, a tailored service, employing our experience in both evaluating the client’s needs and directing them to investors who are appropriate and available. The intermediary role includes assistance in negotiating and concluding deals that are advantageous to all parties.

With an extensive experience in the resource sector, and the ability to make contact with specialist funds, industrial and trade partners and high net worth individuals, Blue Lakes can find the right partner for viable projects. For the capital partners, the fact that the opportunities Blue Lakes brings to them have been selected according to known interests and so will be worth consideration.

While the universe of potential transactions has no formal limit, most deals which come to us are between US$5 million and US$ 25 million in value. In addition, assistance to firms in asset disposal, merger broking and participation in larger transactions may add value on an opportunistic basis.
