Boréalis today announced its recent partnership with Senegalese company Geomin. For the Canadian-based software company, this first alliance in Senegal will bring new opportunities to mining projects that wish to operate in respect of best practices and international standards. This new partnership reinforces Boréalis’ presence in West Africa and will promote Corporate Social Responsibility among local mining projects.
Geomin is a strategic partner with a deep understanding of Senegalese and West African markets, in addition to its multiple contribution to studies in the sub-area. The firm offers support and strategic advising services for the private sector that are also suitable for governmental and international organisations working in geoscience and mining. Its multiple contributions to mining projects in exploration, planning and exploitation phases are directly linked to its good reputation for ethics and professionalism, thus making it a privileged partner for actors of the mining industry. Geomin’s vision and approach allow clients to benefit from a better base for their projects and to rely on a positive influence for operations throughout the project lifecycle.
With this strategic partnership, Boréalis wishes to develop its activities in Senegal, a country where it currently has no active projects. The West African country is currently trying to develop its mining activities and the combined expertise of Boréalis and Geomin will be of great contribution to this development. Both organisations hold many years’ experience working with mining and other similar infrastructure projects in their respective specialisation. This experience comes with valuable lessons learned that allowed them to improve delivery, but most importantly to gain incredible knowledge of local realities and specificities.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Geomin among our partner network. This partnership will provide Senegalese companies and projects the opportunity to gain from our experience working on international projects and Geomin’s experience with analysis, prevention and mitigation of project risks in Senegal,” states Louis R. Lieutenant, Account Director for Africa at Boréalis. “We’ve been working in Africa for over 15 years and gaining a partner in a country where we are not active yet will tremendously reinforce our presence in the area.”
