MineHutte is a private research organisation based in London, England, with a team composed of international legal experts based in the UK, Chile, France, Russia and USA. MineHutte has built a global resource of regulatory risk ratings and analysis as well as a database of mining specific legislation, regulation and technical reports, with the aim of providing rich, intelligent and objective information to guide investment decisions in the mining sector.

Our ultimate aim is to provide regulatory risk analysis for 220 jurisdictions. At present we have ratings for 110 jurisdictions, including many updated ratings.  The ratings, which range from 0-100, measure the level of risk of an investor losing the economic benefits anticipated from a mineral discovery based solely on a jurisdiction’s regulatory framework. MineHutte warns any investor to be cautious if they hold an investment or plan to invest in a jurisdiction with a rating of less than 50.
