Seagate handles its business mainly on a principal to principal basis which is preferred by most mines and smelters. This business method involves the outright purchase and sale of the non-ferrous products and provides the greatest opportunity for profits In addition to outright purchases and sales, SMMI is also involved in the upgrading or customizing of raw materials (toll operations), countertrade activities, providing the service of recycling by-products and residues, as well as barter transactions (swaps and switches). 

Risk control


There are always risks inherent in trading any raw materials or commodity. Seagate assumes these normal risks that involve amongst others; credit exposure, government regulation, performance risk and price fluctuations and manages them.  SMMI has instituted a risk management and reporting system that limits risks as follows;

  • Financial and trading limits for each costumer and supplier based on their own financial strengths.
  • Metal price risks are hedged on the terminal markets, LME and COMEX, to avoid pricing risks and ock in spreads.
  • Insurance under a floating policy covers all materials from the time title and risk is passed to Seagate.
