Due Diligence

Due Diligence for Artisanal and Small-scale Gold Mining (ASGM)

We help gold buyers make better deal decisions by performing due diligence, assessing legitimacy and cost reduction opportunities to determine a seller's full potential, and providing a clear transparent transaction.


Our private due diligence firm is renowned for the deal discipline that guides our decision about when it makes sense to proceed with an investment and when it’s best to walk away.

Teng Germ Co. Limited understands business legitimacy and supply capability as key to any successful business transaction and therefore brings analytical rigor, independence and a vast range of industry and functional expertise to the painstaking work of vetting prospective gold merchants or traders.

What We Do

Our experience and expansive network allow us to help clients quickly develop an accurate assessment of local artisanal and small-scale gold mining traders and purchase procedures, including storage facility visitations, verification of origin documentation, testing and assays and exit options for clients.

In addition to external assessment, as timing and protocol allow, we also conduct a thorough internal one, interviewing the merchant company’s management, as well as reviewing its customer base, personnel and operations.
