Mining

Hit by global economic volatility, the industry remains resilient as today’s pioneers regenerate business with innovation and operational efficiency.

We help clients to acquire innovative business leaders and corporate functional experts across the mining value chain, to take their organisations to the next level. We work primarily with:

In recent years, the industry has gone through one of its worst ever cycles, with the commodity downturn, rising costs and major write-downs. This has resulted in strategic realignment and consolidation, as well as changes in the leadership profile to achieve stability for the future.

The need for operational excellence, efficiencies and increased productivity is driving business leaders to leverage innovations in technology and automation.  Operational efficiency including supply chain optimisation is a key theme. We are seeing a growing intensity around innovation, as clients reframe operational and digital leadership, seeking fresh ideas and talent from related industries.

Business leaders continue to navigate stakeholder engagement, taking more progressive approaches with shareholders, governments, local communities and labour. Boyden has a high-level mining team and skills in key geographies around the world. We share insight and best practice with clients and colleagues on matters such as a social licence to operate, local governance and stakeholder engagement in major mining regions and countries worldwide.
