What We Do
Apollo Group has a track record of identifying world class projects that are strategically important for all stakeholders.
Over the past two decades we have deployed more than A$1.2 billion into natural resources projects across six continents and created significant value for shareholders and stakeholders.
Apollo Group and the companies it manages have had considerable success in identifying and acquiring world class projects in commodities such as gold, coal, uranium, iron ore, and base metals.
Apollo Group has then guided these projects through exploration, feasibility and development phases by ensuring they have the necessary management and technical skills, investor support and funding from capital markets.
Apollo Group has developed a strong reputation for building successful long term natural resources projects. Key components of Apollo Group’s strategy and business model include:
Selection of world class projects
An ability to identify projects that have the potential to become world class due to:
- Scale of production
- Long mine life
- High margins
- Lowest cost quartile
Apollo Group applies a disciplined due diligence process undertaken by in-house industry experts to assess each project’s:
- Marketability and funding potential
- Potential to have a long term positive impact on all stakeholders
Apollo Group will usually acquire new projects via a listed company that Apollo Group manages. This company will be listed on one or more well regarded stock exchanges, including:
- Australia Securities Exchange (ASX)
- London Stock Exchange (LSE)
- Toronto Stock Exchange (TSE)
- Alternative Investment Market of London (AIM)
Being listed on multiple stock exchanges allows for a greater diversity of shareholders, enhances access to funding and can better align investors with the project.
Rapid Project Development
Apollo Group generally becomes involved in projects at an early stage in both:
- Project development
- Ongoing funding
Apollo Group then assists existing management, or if needed recruits new management, to rapidly accelerate the project’s development by ensuring access to the necessary technical skills and funding from capital markets, for:
- Technical studies
- Permitting and environmental compliance
- Community engagement
- Mine development phases
International Best Practice with Communities, Training and Safety
To ensure the project meets expectations of all stakeholders, Apollo Group adopts international best practice as its standard for undertaking these project development activities, which results in:
- Highly trained staff
- Safety standards and practice
- Environmental compliance
- Community engagement
- Funding from international financiers
- Higher investor confidence, market support, and project valuation
