Complementing our oil and gas practice, MKK
has from its inception also been intimately involved in all aspects of the
hard mining sector, advising clients in the coal, nickel, copper and gold
and other hard mining fields. We assist in the establishment and licensing
of new mining companies and provide on–going legal advice with respect
to all aspects of their operations, including mining rights and land title
issues, labor, tax, environmental and other regulatory matters. We also
represent mining companies as borrowers as well as banks lending to the
mining industry and have extensive experience with secured, project lending
in the mining sector.
MKK also advises investors and lenders in a variety of other natural resources
sectors, including timber, palm oil, cacao and other plantation products
as well as the thermal energy sector.
