Who We Are

Our purpose is to contribute to solving the problems of people and planet. We do so profitably, without profiting from causing problems.

Base Resources (ASX & AIM: BSE) is an Australian-based, African-focused, mineral sands producer and developer with a track record of project delivery and operational performance.

We operate the established Kwale Operation in Kenya which produces a suite of mineral sands products, namely ilmenite, rutile and zircon. We are also developing the Toliara Project in Madagascar. Base Resources is headquartered in Perth, Western Australia.

Benefiting from consistent production at Kwale Operations in a tight feedstock market, the Company has achieved consistently strong results enabling the establishment of a robust financial platform. An emerging global feedstock supply shortage provides the opportunity to grow the business and build a truly unique mineral sands company. 

Our Approach

From the outset, Base Resources has sought to take a different approach to mining development, seeking to fully integrate sustainability considerations and practices into all aspects of our business.  We wanted to set the bar higher.  To do it the right way.

Our approach and business practices are founded on a set of core principles that together form the “Base Way” which permeates every aspect of our business.

The Base Way is based on our belief in:

  • The potential of our people
  • The power of the team
  • The value of resources
  • Absolute integrity

We design and operate mines with the full life cycle in mind and are completely committed to operating in line with global best practice with context-specific social and environmental performance standards.

At Base Resources, we believe that environmental and social risks and impacts are interconnected, and we manage them as such.

As an African-focused mining company, we take great pride in working with members of our host communities through our preferential system of employment and procurement, ensuring that those nearest to, or most affected by, our mining activities have the greatest opportunity to benefit from those activities.
