Acquisition portfolio

Obsideo Consulting and Construction

Amava has an interest in Obsideo, which provides engineering and management services to the mining and mineral industries. It is currently on an aggressive expansion trail offering “one stop shop” from feasibility, design, engineering, procurement, construction and management. This is an offering that has been lacking in the mining industry as these functions are offered by disparate companies with lack of accountability.

Mineral Zone

As Amava extends it’s offering in the alloys industry it has acquired an interest in Mineral Zone, a complete solutions company supplying the alloy industry from mine to furnace, from source to customer.  It services the Metallurgical and Mining sectors with a range of metals and minerals, ore and services.

It also caters for the refractory, ceramic, paint and plastics industries.
