The ENRROXS Mining Group: Michael Reza Pacha's new ambition, driven by a global vision of the energy sector
Passionate about all the issues related to energy, Michael Reza Pacha founded the ENRROXS Energy & Mining group in 2011. This group specializes in the exploitation and exploration of mining resources. It is divided into several subsidiaries that operate in Africa, the Middle East, Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan.
“Even today, many prospectors do not hesitate to pollute, or even poison a river to extract a few grams of gold. That is not my vision of the mining industry.” – Michael Reza Pacha
In 2017 a new subsidiary was created: 4S (Smart Solar System Solutions), specialized in the development and production of solar energy. In addition to the two other subsidiaries, MGM Mines and Caspian Energy Solutions, which specialize in the extraction of raw materials.
The orientation towards solar power is the symbol of Michael Reza Pacha's vision. He has long been a believer in renewable energies and in particular solar power. Within the Monaco Ambassadors Club, he was one of the pioneers in encouraging the Monegasque electric cart. Ecology and the reduction of greenhouse gases are challenges that he deeply cares about. Michael Reza Pacha has embedded this vision in his companies. For example, 4S, a subsidiary of the ENRROXS group, has set up a system to supply mining companies with solar energy. Called the Mining Fuel Saver Solution (MFSS), this system aims to reduce the high energy costs of mining by offering a renewable solar energy solution. One of the main objectives of Michael Reza Pacha and his teams, in a close future is to democratize the MFSS in the Middle East and Africa. Especially in the gold mine that will be operated by the ENRROXS Energy & Mining group in Mali.
On the basis of his extensive experience and vision, in 2014 Michael Reza Pacha decided to expand his activities by investing in a gold mining company listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, PEARL GOLD AG. On July 17, 2014, he was appointed Chairman of the Management Board of the company, which he managed to keep afloat. On November 16, 2017, due to significant disagreements with some shareholders, Michael Reza Pacha decided to resign as CEO. Several legal proceedings are ongoing around PEARL GOLD AG, but in view of the criminal complaints filed by Michael Reza Pacha against certain shareholders and former members of the Supervisory Board, he refrains from making any comments or violating the secrecy of the investigation.
Throughout my career, I have chosen to work on subjects and for causes that I deeply cared about”
