Investment podium

MINEX Russia Forum offers platform for presentation of Brownfield and Greenfield investment projects

Applications for project presentations must be submitted before 1 September – 


The need for further exploration of mineral resources in Russia requires access to funding and the ability of subsoil users’ to economically and quickly implement projects. Those who cannot demonstrate healthy balance sheet and steady cash flow find the dialogue with financiers extremely hard and mostly unsuccessful. Besides geopolitical tensions many investors believe that Russia has very little to offer, as most projects are not viable while commodity prices decline and political tensions between Russian and the Western World remain.

Is this true and what is being done?

The role of the Russian State in supporting mineral exploration is declining. In 2015 the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology further reduced funding and limited the number of state-sponsored exploration projects. According to the Agency for Subsoil Use, this will inevitably decrease the growth of proven reserves in the medium term and could have a negative impact on the production of the major strategic minerals such as gold, diamonds, and silver in 2016-17 and beyond.

While the Government’s ability to support exploration is shrinking, the share of Private Business and Entrepreneurship in developing Russia mineral resources is growing.

Where can businesses find the money and resources for exploration?

According to survey conducted by MINEX Forum in early 2016, the funding for mineral exploration in Russia mainly comes from the following sources:

  • Large and mid-size mining companies with strategic interests in Russia
  • Industrial holdings and metal producers
  • Russian and International private equity companies and funds
  • High-net-worth groups and private investors
  • Local regional development funds
  • Commercial banks (mainly in the form of loan finance)
