Description

The energy transition requires a lot of metal, especially copper, cobalt, nickel, and lithium. There is far more demand for these critical minerals than there is supply, which will require more mining, and construction of more mineral processing and battery manufacturing facilities. To meet this demand, end users are investing in or financing mineral projects. This webinar will review the current state of supply and demand for battery metals and copper, the legal and commercial strategies being used to find supply in a constrained market, and the issues facing the development of future mineral production, such as permitting delays and opposition to mineral development.
