Charlottesville, VA (PRWEB) January 08, 2014
One year after entering the metals & mining sector with the purchase of Metals Economics Group, SNL announces the acquisition of IntierraRMG, another leading company in the space with a similar focus on delivering superior information and actionable intelligence to key industry participants. The new combination – SNL Metals & Mining – reaffirms SNL's commitment to providing the global mining industry with a “one-stop” source for accurate and complete data to support better decision-making.
“Following the many enhancements SNL has made to its mining information platform in the past year, the addition of IntierraRMG marks yet another major step forward in the breadth, depth and quality of information we can deliver to clients,” remarked Jason Goulden, SNL Metals & Mining Director. “We plan to integrate our two databases and support IntierraRMG's other business lines that are new to SNL, including strategic consulting, region-specific conferences and educational seminars.”
“Like IntierraRMG, SNL has a great reputation for quality and comprehensiveness,” noted Peter Rossdeutscher, CEO of IntierraRMG. “By combining product offerings, SNL’s clients will have the best of both companies’ individual product solutions under one service.”
In addition to the current offering available to SNL clients – data, news and analysis on worldwide exploration, development, production, planning, and acquisitions activity – SNL Metals & Mining will now provide mining claims data for more than 60 countries, complete coverage of coal and other commodities, complete coverage of early stage assets and Raw Materials Group’s successful strategic consulting and high-quality forecast data. Through this acquisition, SNL has also expanded its global footprint with offices now in Perth, Stockholm, Calgary, Vancouver & Toronto.
