SCP Resource Finance will continue to provide capital markets advisory, investment banking and private client business to mineral exploration and mining clients on a global basis from offices in Toronto and London.
“At SCP, we have one of the broadest investment teams covering the mining industry, with analysts across all sub-specialities from base and energy transition metals to precious metals and uranium. Our independence, specialized knowledge and experienced team differentiates us from other dealers servicing the sector.
