Simon Woods has been the insurance broker for Base Resources and our wholly owned subsidiary Base Titanium since our inception.


Simon has managed our insurance requirements through the feasibility, construction and operational stages of the Kwale Mineral Sands Mine, in Kenya and our corporate office requirements. This has included, but is not limited to; the development and management of our insurance requirements with our lenders and their advisers, the negotiation and placement of those insurances in local, national and international insurance markets and the arrangement of required admitted insurance policies.


Simon ensures our insurance programme meets our needs and those of our key stakeholders and is a key member of the Base Resources’ team as a valued and trusted adviser.


We would have no hesitation in recommending Simon and his team.

Simon designed an innovative restructuring of our construction and liability insurance policies which delivered premium savings, a reduction in our total cost of risk and a level of cover more suited to our business.


I would have no hesitation in recommending Simon and his team to other corporate and construction clients as he is personable, market experienced and has the ability to think outside the square to deliver appropriate bespoke solutions.

Simon, Mattie and the team at Woods Midland Insurance Brokers on their appointment

to our account in December 2017 were able to provide to us improved insurance

coverage for Business Interruption, contamination, spillage and leakage while at the same

time, providing us with significant premium savings.

Since then they have continued to provide a high level of service by being proactive to our

needs and being timely in their delivery. We have also been impressed by their

promptness in helping us obtain expeditious claims settlements when we have required.

The team in Woods Midland are also very friendly and easy to get along with.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Woods Midland Insurance Brokers to our

fellow wine industry participants.

Yours sincerely
