TRIDENT

Our Companies

Trident Group of Companies, an independent mining company, was established with the intent to act as a source of information for all future Trident companies thus enabling strategic alliances to be in place, as well as accessing specific expertise and specialized information from any of these companies.  With over four decades of multi-faceted expertise in gold exploration, mining and bullion trading the Group’s focus has been to assist the sourcing of mines with high grade gold. With the combined know-how of the various Trident teams, the liquidity of its investors and bulk volume preferential rates provided by Swiss and US refineries, has gained us a competitive edge in the gold business.

Through the acquisition and export of mined gold, the Trident Group developed a large overseas client base, mainly international refineries and private investors. Its wholesaler accounts are with a select handful of the world’s largest refineries, including MKS Switzerland that is accredited by the Swiss National Bank, LBMA (London Bullion Market) and Shanghai Gold Exchange. Trident’s team of professionals are constantly sourcing new supplies, however, it operates only with companies that are at the forefront of technology with clean and cost effective solutions.

Business Model

The Trident Group works with mines, investment entities, portfolio managers, and wealth management firms to obtain physical gold as well as using its own mined gold, as part of their overall wealth and asset strategies. This highly specialized investment has enabled Trident to secure funding because of its expertise and ability to produce results.

The Trident Group’s dedicated team of experts and wide ranging contacts enables it to source gold projects in varying development stages. We find and assess viable assets, qualify the potential and move to production as soon as possible.

Investment / Finance Summary

Trident companies acquire and fund projects that require US $10 million and above, total investment, to reach production 

and commence the processing and refining of mined mineral, enabling gold bullion to be exported with minimum delay.

Strategy

During the four decades since its founding, the Trident Group has expanded and diversified its business strategies. In 2008, entry into Chile enabled Trident to expand its precious metals division.

Starting with purchasing of mined production it was a natural progression to acquire key mining leases that would suit its unique business model – acquire and sell physical gold.

Mining

To date, mining activities of the various Trident companies in Chile are advancing through exploration work, resource development, and feasibility studies combined with actual production. In addition, negotiations and exploration projects are ongoing in the regions of Coquimbo and Libertador Bernardo O’Higgins as well as the community of Rio Hurtado. In the Coquimbo region, Trident is test mining and processing extracted ore in trapiches at its Punitaqui property.

In the region of Rio Hurtado, through reverse circulation drilling, Trident has identified resources with grades from 2.68 to 12 g/t Au, with a potential for significant polymetallic gold mineralization. Trident Minerals a relatively new mining venture is well on its way with exploration, assays and has commenced production.
