Earlier this year I was invited to speak at one of the side seminars running at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) Conference - probably the world's largest mining conference - on the subject of specialty metals and minerals. Alas, I was unable to attend but my friend and colleague, Dave Stevenson (then Centre for Exploration Targeting* now…

Earlier in the year, I presented an abstract at the World Renewable Energy Congress, here in Perth. It was a different audience to my usual mining crowd, but nonetheless I think the presentation was of interest and seemed to generate more than a few questions. The presentation was entitled "The energy transition: A mining and exploration industry perspective". It covered…

Last November, I was honoured to present at the Mines and Money Conference in London. I presented the results of a scenario planning workshop earlier in the year that looked at the role of the minerals industry in the energy transition to renewable sources, which has synced nicely with some previous research on critical metals. The presentation was entitled "The…

This week, a pair of peer-reviewed articles to which I contributed were published in the Applied Earth Science journal of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) and the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (AusIMM). The articles are part of a continuing thematic issue on mineral economics and critical minerals. The first, published online in January and discussed…

Last year I presented a keynote at the Argus Media-Metal Pages China Metals Week in Guangzhou, entitled "Which markets are the future stars of the 'critical metals' industry?" The presentation looks at which of the critical metals, those defined as small important metal markets with supply constraints, have the potential to outgrow their current constraints and become large, industrial metals…
