About Us
Textura abstracta


We are a Canadian investment company that believes financial gains are sustainable only when combined with fighting climate change and developing communities.


Founded by two responsible and experienced entrepreneurs believing today’s investments should embrace a circular economy that leads to sustainable economic development for all stakeholders while providing very attractive returns.

The increase demand for light metals challenge governments and businesses alike to source essential substances while decreasing dependency on limited suppliers. The increase pressure to look for alternatives can lead to greater inefficiencies and more troubling, greater negative impact on the environment. 

NGI funds investment opportunities that operate within a circular economy, whereby value creation is achieved from recovering mining tails and reusing them in new applications.

Green Magnesium

Green Magnesium is achieved through the safe recovery of chrysotile mining tails, repairs an environmental waste, fights climate change and provides job growth and sustainable communities.  We are partnering with companies turning this once environmental waste into usable material in various industries
