Spotlight #2: Beyond gold: West Africa’s potential to feed the emerging battery metals market

COVID-19 has undoubtedly caused a massive spike in the gold sector – which has favoured the West African region well – it is home to vast gold resources across all key countries. But when considering the mining investment potential in West Africa – one must consider the mineralization wealth that extends beyond gold. Did you know the region has the potential to become one of the world’s largest lithium producers and exporters? It also is host to cobalt and nickel ores  – all of which are needed to feed the imminently burgeoning battery metals market.
 
The discussion will evaluate West Africa’s mineral potential outside of gold and look at some of the strategic junior mining companies looking to develop their names and new projects in the battery metals market.

Spotlight #4 - Reshaping energy capital flows to drive positive investment into mining  

Energy and mining are intrinsically linked to guarantee the performance of mining operations, assisting in mitigating large operating costs and contributing to the sustainability of business operations, as well as creating a greater social impact on the communities around which mining companies operate.
This session will dive into the appetite of mining companies for alternative sources of energy, and how to support them in mitigating risk attached to their project. Because there is no such thing as one size fits all, there is a need to understand and find the right “fit” for each mining company, especially at the exploration stage.
