Those operating in the mining sector face a heavily regulated environment at the mercy of geopolitics and constant economic, environmental, legal and operational challenges. Curtis advises clients at all stages of natural resource exploitation, from organizing tenders, drafting and negotiation of production sharing agreements, mineral licenses and concessions, to infrastructure procurement and development, as well as project finance, marketing and distribution.
Curtis mining law attorneys offer comprehensive advice on the development of mining infrastructure, including all aspects of the building, operation, transfer and leasing of mining infrastructure. We also advise clients on commercial and contract aspects, including joint ventures and other contractual arrangements, environmental and other regulatory concerns, and the sale and purchase of significant mining assets. Representative industries include mining, manufacturing and trading in copper, zinc, lead, coke and many other metals and metal-related products.
Governments seeking counsel on the design and implementation of laws, regulations and regulatory entities governing the mining and natural resource sectors often rely on Curtis’ depth of industry knowledge to develop instruments that protect their interests while remaining commercially viable.
For over 35 years, Curtis’ minerals and natural resource attorneys have developed insight into the particular requirements of governments and state-owned entities involved in the mining, metal and energy industries.
Our advisory services in the mining and natural resource sectors include strategic financial and commercial advice, risk analysis, tender design and implementation, analysis, preparation and negotiation of contracts, licenses, concessions and ancillary agreements.
Curtis has had considerable success in recent years defending states facing challenges from investors and joint venture partners in the Middle East, Africa and Asia in the mining and minerals industry.
Gold Mining Victory in Ghana
Curtis won a sweeping victory in 2015 for the Government of the Republic of Ghana in a commercial arbitration relating to the termination of a gold mining concession in Ghana. The initial claim was US$200 million and a subsequent claim for breach of contract, both of which were dismissed by the tribunal, which upheld our client’s counterclaim and ordered the applicants to pay costs and legal fees of over US$3 million.
