Minerals have a significant impact on our lives, our environment and affect us in ways we are not aware of; from power cables, mobile phones, computers, cars, processed food and many other areas part of everyday life.

LXL has expertise in every aspect of the mining cycle from a legal and commercial perspective providing assistance to host governments, as well as mining companies on issues such as securing mining rights, the construction, development, funding and operation of mines and related infrastructure, and the commercialisation of minerals internationally and in both established and emerging markets and jurisdictions.
