Paydirt’s Battery Minerals Conference will once again showcase the junior mining companies with the essential ingredients driving Industry 4.0. It has been estimated that the lithium value chain alone could be a $1.3 trillion per annum industry by 2025, while it is expected that demand for graphite, cobalt, nickel, copper, manganese, tin, vanadium and rare earths will surge exponentially in the next decade. Investors are awake to the opportunities in the battery minerals sector and remain active in their pursuit of the next best stock to watch.
Following the Federal Government’s pledge of $25 million for a six-year co-operative research centre initiative to examine future battery industries in Western Australia (WA), Australian companies are poised to be major players in the battery minerals sector. Kwinana in WA is potentially the only other (global) viable alternative to China for the downstream processing of battery chemicals; giving Australia a natural advantage in fulfilling growing demand for ethical supply, sustainability, traceability and quality standards.
Paydirt’s 2020 Battery Minerals Conference will afford investors the opportunity to build on their understanding of this most captivating sector, which serves as a melting pot for the battery minerals sector, involving in-depth discussions on market outlooks, project developments, and the future of the global battery industry and technology.
