Altus exploration company aims to buck trend with London listing

A British firm hunting for mineral resources in Africa is hoping to be the first venture of its kind to float on the London Stock Exchange since a deep commodity price crash wiped out the appetite for exploration risk.
Even after the sector recovered in 2016, new mining listings have been sparse on the London market, which is dominated by big players as smaller exploration companies are more often launched on the Canadian or Australian exchanges.
