Our mining team takes decades of broking experience across several sectors, to bring insight to mid & small-cap mining.

We cover a range of mining companies, from large multi asset producers to companies with development projects. These companies produce gold, silver, diamonds and platinum group metals on the precious side. We also cover copper, zinc, chrome, nickel and potash producers and developers. Lastly we have coverage of two royalty and streaming businesses, one precious and one industrial.

Peter Mallin-Jones joined Peel Hunt in May 2015 with 15 years of broking experience with both Goldman Sachs and latterly Canaccord Genuity. He led mining focused research teams at both houses.

Higher gold prices for longer as inflation bites twice. We update our gold equity estimates to account for rising gold prices, believing that a second surge of food price inflation will sustain higher prices through 2022E.
