Getting into industry initially can be hard work. There are certain things you can manufacture that require small investments of money but provide decent ish rewards (although a decent reward is all relative of course).
One thing no one has mentioned that I thought I could chime in with is the idea of using what you buy as collateral.
If you have enough capital to turnover the minerals already yourself, you may be able to get a collateralised loan from the MD people to purchase a BPO, which then itself gets locked down as the collateral. Depending on the value of your current BPO’s, you may also be able to use them as collateral – just because its being used as collateral (from what I gather) you can still access the BPO and use it, you just cant run off with it and sell it, making your bond then potentially a very safe investment!
Hope this information helps and gives you a new angle to look at things from.
