Stock Image Mining is probably the most vital sector to the global energy transition and the success of the much-vaunted net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 targets. Still, it’s currently the laggard in the process. The mining industry is largely at an inflection point insofar it knows its raw materials are the building blocks of the move from fossil fuels to clean energy, but it can’t seem to convince the rest of world that this is the case. The overwhelming message from miners, and investors at two major mining conferences in South Africa this week is that the situation is urgent, and getting worse. The challenges do seem pressing, given the vast volumes of copper, lithium, cobalt, nickel, zinc, manganese and graphite that will be required, and the limited plans to develop new mines to produce the metals needed.

Critical Minerals - a whole supply-chain approach

Critical Minerals – a whole supply-chain approach

As the world races to a net zero emissions target, Governments and companies across the globe are increasingly grappling with the practicalities of achieving net zero emissions target by 2050, consistent with the Paris Agreement. Economies have accelerated efforts to reduce emissions, which has seen an exponential increase in clean energy technology. This upwards trend – which isn’t even close to reaching its peak – combined with increasing global focus on securing critical mineral supply chains is causing the whole world to increase its focus on critical minerals. The term ‘critical minerals’ is generally a reference to mineral or metal elements which are crucial in the development of future technologies. These include lithium, graphite, cobalt, vanadium, scandium, copper, nickel and rare earth elements – each an essential component in solar panels, wind turbines, batteries and other low emissions technologies as well as being essential for EVs. The types of […]
