Technical Critical Minerals is focused on ESG investment in critical mineral, technology metal and strategic mineral supply chains using blockchain technology to trace product flow from mine source to refined product through a vertically integrated vehicle.
TCM is launching the Critical Mineral and Industrial Strategy Fund I (Fund I), which will be looking to secure strategic stakes in critical mineral, technology metal and strategic mineral supply chains.
Fund I will be investing only where it can secure positions of influence or control over minerals that are critical, strategic or of technological importance to British industry.
TCM will invest in mineral production, separation, smelting, refining and processing facilities, as well as storage and delivery solutions. TCM intends to focus investments in countries where Britain has had a long term historic and special connection, including countries in the Commonwealth and the European Union.
TCM will employ its proprietary investment model to ensure ESG auditing and compliance to ensure a Category 1 ESG rating in compliance with the Critical Minerals Association's best practice standards. This will include blockchain ledgered supply chain management systems.
