RCS Global Group has developed the Better Mining program to support supply chain risk management and positive impact generation at the source of global raw materials supply chains (the ‘upstream’).

Successfully piloted as ‘Better Cobalt‘ on a cobalt supply chain from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Better Mining evolved into an ASM site monitoring program implemented in cobalt, copper, tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold, and is adaptable to any other ASM-produced raw material.

Better Mining’s promises are:
a) active and permanent monitoring of artisanal mine sites (ASM) and trading chains in all minerals for adherence to responsible sourcing market expectations; and
b) secure delivery of analysed data packages in flexible formats to meet clients’ risk management and positive impact generation objectives.


Data is collected in alignment with the requirements of:

OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Mineral Supply Initiative Chains

Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) Responsible Minerals Assurance Process

Our tech systems are flexible and can validate against any further responsible sourcing criteria, standards and/or legislation.
