Tamar Resources jest brytyjską spółką, korzystającą z kapitału private equity. Spółka zajmuje się finansowaniem inwestycji w sektorze górnictwa węgla koksowego. We współpracy z NSZZ Solidarność oraz byłymi pracownikami KWK Krupiński, Tamar przedstawił Ministerstwu Energii propozycję nabycia od państwa zamkniętej w 2017 roku kopalni węgla kamiennego położonej w Suszcu. 

Jeszcze przed likwidacją na Krupińskim wydobywano głównie węgiel energetyczny — najczęściej wykorzystywany do produkcji energii. Dziś jednak jest on powszechnie uważany za szkodliwy dla środowiska naturalnego, a głównie atmosfery.  

Tamar z kolei chce przekształcić kopalnię Krupiński w producenta węgla koksowego poprzez sięgnięcie do głębszych pokładów złoża. Jest to kluczowy surowiec wykorzystywany przy produkcji stali. Z tego też powodu został on wpisany przez Komisję Europejską na listę surowców kluczowych dla rozwoju europejskiej gospodarki. 

Tamar’s Chief Executive, George Rogers, is one of the UK’s most experienced mine financiers having had a 30 year career of financing mines and mining companies, either as investor, lender or advisor. His career began in 1987 in the mining team of Rothschild Bank, before moving to run the London based mining businesses of Deutsche Bank and then Investec Bank. While at Investec, he founded, financed, and chaired the boards of two coking coal companies in West Virginia. After Investec, he formed the mining finance consultancy, Rockface Capital.

 

Working with Mr Rogers in Tamar is Dr Eike von der Linden a highly experienced mining engineer and mineral economist with a 43 year track record in the resources industry. He is one of Europe’s leading resources sector technical-financial advisors, providing independent guidance to a number of companies and banks. He sits, and has sat, on a variety of different boards, often at the request of financial institutions with whom he is working. The main two banks that he has worked with have been the Deutsche Bank Group and Investec Bank Ltd, in each case providing independent advice to the boards and investment and credit committees on mining risks proposed. In this context he has worked alongside Mr Rogers since 1995. Prior to this, he was Section Head for Metallgesellschaft's International Mining Group, a branch manager for Lurgi Group and a member of Metallgesellschaft’s Supervisory Board. By education he is a mining engineer (Technical University of Clausthal) and mineral economist (Technical University of Münich). Until recently he was visiting lecturer of Financial Engineering at Clausthal. 

Dr von der Linden will sit as a technical expert on the board of Tamar Resources, interfacing with the management team of the mine, which will be formed entirely of experienced Polish nationals from the region. 

PRESS RELEASES / INFORMACJE PRASOWE

Tamar Resources is a private-equity backed UK company created to acquire near-production coking coal assets.

Working in partnership with the respected Solidarity trade union, Tamar has submitted a proposal to the Polish Ministry of Energy to acquire the recently closed Krupinski mine from the state. 

Krupinski was previously operated as a thermal coal mine. Thermal coal is used in power production, but is now generally seen as environmentally unacceptable. Tamar's plan is to re-open the mine and instead extract the coking coal that lies beneath the thermal coal. Coking coal is used in the production of steel, and for which there is no substitute. It's scarcity and strategic importance means that it is on the European Commission's list of Critical Raw Materials.
