About Us

H&N Investments ("H&N") is a Hines Family Investment and business consulting enterprise which has operated successfully for over 40 years. The Mineral Sands Consultancy ("TMSC") was established in 1988 to support our resource related business consulting activities.  Our directors have a wealth of experience in Australasian and international development projects across the resource, rail, industrial and construction sectors. Work and project locations have included US, Canadian, UK, European, South American, African, PNG, NZ, Indonesian, Malaysian, Indian, Vietnamese, and Chinese markets.


H&N operates through long term relationships and alliances built on trust with key industry specialists whose services have been provided to our many long term clients due to the broad experience, capability and detailed understanding of client needs. We assist company boards and senior executives with M&A deal structuring, including board support services to identify a clear way forward from transformation through to business acquisition and integration.  We organise seed capital and facilitate financing deals through various partners and networks depending upon client needs.


Our consulting business "The Mineral Sands Consultancy" ("TMSC") has experience covering many aspects of international resource and engineering business development requirements from organisational and operational review, through to growth planning and process improvement. We have purposefully scaled back our consulting activities and now work more with outside partners to provide metallurgical and engineering support services. This allows H&N to provide a broader array of higher value-add commercial/financial/technical/management & project support services to our target clients.

TMSC's consulting activities cover management review, process and project definition, right through to detailed logistics and product market evaluations and pricing. Our experience also covers both strategic and detailed operational and commercial risk management covering projects from +$4Bn PPP's, to major EPCM, D&C, commissioning, operations and maintenance management activites for major international public and private companies, and government authorities.


These complimentary businesses deliver superior business growth, transformation and change management expertise to our clients based upon true value creation, values leadership, and continuous operational improvement. This is delivered within a strong commercial, quality, and zero harm reporting framework.
