Paydirt’s Battery Minerals Conference is the premier forum for miners and explorers developing the essential ingredients driving the Industrial Revolution 4.0. Global demand for critical minerals needed for clean technology applications are forecast to grow exponentially over the coming decades. The lithium value chain alone will be a $1.3 trillion sector by 2025, while demand for nickel, graphite, cobalt, copper, manganese, tin, vanadium and rare earths is expected to more than double by 2030 as the world transitions to a low-carbon economy.
At the government level, Australian federal and state governments are rolling out new policies designed to entice local and international investors to build mines and a new downstream processing industry. On the international front, governments and major car manufacturers are building their own supply chain strategies with Australian companies within their sights.
Paydirt’s Battery Minerals Conference not only affords investors the opportunity to build their understanding of this dynamic sector, but also brings together critical minerals stakeholders – representing industry, academia, regulators and government – from across the globe. It serves as a melting pot for in-depth discussions on market outlooks, project development and the future of the global battery industry.
Join us on 6-7 April 2022 for Australia’s only event dedicated to the development of the critical minerals industry.
