Mining Insurance and Risk Management

Learn how your organization can benefit from mining insurance and risk management. 

Global Mining Practice Overview

Aon’s global mining practice is a leading provider of insurance and risk management solutions for mining clients across precious metals (e.g., gold, silver platinum group metals), base metals (e.g., copper, lead, nickel, cobalt and zinc), bulk commodities (e.g., iron ore, coal) and rare earth metals. We work with clients at every stage of the mining lifecycle -- from exploration and evaluation through production and ultimately closure –- and align their insurance programs accordingly. Our experience extends to mining services and contractors, developers and single asset operators through to global Tier 1 miners. 

Leveraging deep industry knowledge about mining, our global network of about 300 colleagues provide clients with the advice and tools they need to make better decisions about protecting their people and projects. 

Our risk capabilities for mining clients span traditional risks to newer, emerging risks. At a high-level, our risk capabilities include risk profiling, valuations, loss control engineering, climate risk assessments, workers’ compensation consultancy and claims support.
