Metals & Mining

Prevalent since the Industrial Revolution, the mining industry has reshaped geographical areas of the UK and continues to have a significant impact. As metal prices have continued to rise in the last few years, there is a resurgence of interest in metals & mining exploration within the UK and further afield despite previous years being more challenging for the industry as a whole.

Hilco understands the external pressures facing our clients operating in this sector both in the UK and globally, from life cycle decline and increased use of alternative sources for electricity gentrification to public concern over environmental issues and economic and political influences.
