A Short Story

STAR ENERGY AND MINERALS GLOBAL COMPANY founded in early 2014 with purpose of supplying a variety of products to a wide range of industries, and exports to Sub-Saharan Africa, as well as marketing a range of specialized industrial minerals and other products that are sourced both locally and internationally. These products are contracted from the Mines and Other Partners and distributed directly to our customers.

After a modest start as a small-scale mining company, we expanded and became a truly multifaceted organization. Conceiving and patenting our own flash technology led to the development of a multitude of value added products, all which are from the mines and other partners and we distribute to both local and international markets. Keeping everything in-house as a full-service company is priority to us. We offer it all: raw mining commodities, and minerals, laboratory testing, research & development, marketing, logistics and shipping.

We are especially proud of the positive contribution our company has made towards reducing the carbon footprint our industry creates, as we actively promotes safety, health, environmental and quality awareness and training. Adherence to the relevant principals, best practice and legislation has resulted in an exceptional record in these areas, which we constantly strive to maintain.

Our research and development involves continuous improvement of product performance, process improvements and product customization in order to supply products that comply with our customers' exact needs
