Business Model

Kenmare’s business model aims to deliver our strategic objectives of growth, margin expansion and shareholder returns. Through our key inputs of an engaged workforce, a disciplined financial approach, a tier one asset and a commitment to being a responsible corporate citizen, we generate benefits for all of our stakeholders in the long term.

Inputs

People

  • Our people are our most important asset as they drive the generation and effective delivery of our strategy.
  • We invest in our employees throughout their careers, offering opportunities for training and development, plus competitive rewards linked to performance.

Assets

  • Moma is one of the largest producing mineral sands mines in the world, producing approximately 7% of global demand for titanium feedstocks.
  • The ore zones contained within the Moma resource base are large enough to support production for more than 100 years, at current rates of production.

Finance

  • Equity and debt markets have provided the financing necessary to develop the Company.
  • Maintaining balance sheet strength and flexibility provides opportunities for shareholder returns and investment growth.

What we do

1. Ore body definition

We use drilling and sampling to define the size, quantity and grade of mineral resources. We then determine technical feasibility and assess commercial viability.


2. Development

Through the development process, commercially viable mineral reserves and resources are transformed into producing assets.


3. Mining

Dredge mining is a low cost form of mining and it accounts for the majority of our mining activities. Dry mining provides additional flexibility.

4. Processing and storage

HMC is processed into finished products at our Mineral Separation Plant. We do not use any chemicals in our mining or processing operations, instead using highly specialised gravity, magnetic and electronic processing methods.


5. Sales and marketing

We have our own dedicated port facility and transhipment vessels. We strive for strong, long-term customer relationships for our marketed products.
