Welcome to Jervois Mining
Jervois Mining is focused on delivering profits and growth to shareholders through the development of existing assets and by identifying new opportunities.
Jervois owns 100 percent of two major nickel / cobalt / scandium / deposits in New South Wales, Australia.
It also owns production royalties over the 3.6 million oz. Bullabulling Gold Deposit in Western Australia and the Nyngan Primary Scandium deposit in New South Wales.
Jervois has been listed on the ASX for more than 50 years and in the last year has undergone a complete board and management transformation.
A new business plan has been implemented which recognizes the high risks of grass roots exploration and the benefits that accrue from early stage investments in companies moving towards development of proven resources.
Direction and Management
There are other undervalued opportunities where a well-funded company could move to the control of emerging mining projects. For Jervois to take advantage of these opportunities and lift its market profile, so as to obtain a re-rating, it has proceeded to raise additional cash now and make things happen. The skill set to implement this plan already exists within the Board, and broking and institutional support is readily available for its implementation.
