Keynote Panel: Bridging the Disconnect to Supply the Metals Required for the Energy Transition

The energy transition is a supply challenge. The energy transition means moving to a cleaner, more sustainable future. However, the minerals required to produce electric cars, wind turbines and other new energy technologies raise some difficult supply issues.

An average electric vehicle (EV) requires six times the amount of minerals as a conventional car, reports the International Energy Agency (IEA), including materials like nickel, cobalt, and lithium that a petrol vehicle typically does not need. An onshore wind plant, meanwhile, needs nine times more mineral resources than a gas-fired plant. The World Bank estimates that demand for metals could increase tenfold by 2050. Reaching net zero by 2050 will require an estimated 3 billion tonnes of metal, as well as significant investments of roughly US$9.2 trillion each year. So, how will the industry get there?

Issues discussed include:

  • What can be done to bridge the supply gap? Will the increased supply come from the majors, mid-tiers, or juniors?
  • How can miners be agile and diversify their commodity base?
  • How can the industry collaborate to achieve these goals?
  • How can governments help achieve these goals? What has been the impact of the US Inflation Reduction Act?
  • What is the role of technology in bridging the supply gap?

Keynote Panel: Who Is Going to Pay? Financing the Energy Transition: Overcoming the Challenges, Investing and Financing Opportunities on the Road to Decarbonisation

Bridging the minerals supply deficit is only one part of the roadmap to the energy transition. Without financing and investment, decarbonisation will not happen. Currently, the industry spends US$40 to US$50bn per year on financing the space. However, we need between US$1.5 and US$2 trillion to finance the energy transition.

This panel will discuss how the industry is tackling this:

  • What commodities do investors currently find attractive in the short term as good bets for the energy transition? How about the longer term?
  • What opportunities are investors looking at when it comes to decarbonisation? Greenfield vs Brownfield? Exploration vs Development vs Production? Mining companies or downstream investment opportunities?
  • Reviewing industry initiatives which have been launched to help finance the energy transition
  • What questions are LP’s and end investors asking natural resource investors about their decarbonisation and net zero policies? Or are they just interested in management performance?

Keynote Panel: Towards Better ESG Reporting – What Needs to Change?

The industry is doing ESG reporting, but is it doing it well?

Issues discussed include:

  • What makes for a best practice ESG Report? What differences, if any, should there be between how, say, an exploration junior and a major reports?
  • Why is there no single industry ESG reporting standard?
  • What regulatory and industry guidance is there?
  • Dealing with competing demands from different stakeholders — investors, customers, rating agencies — all requiring ESG information to be parcelled up in slightly different ways
  • Avoiding the common mistakes of greenwashing and green hushing
  • Should the miner’s ESG reports be audited?
  • Reporting scope 1, 2,3 and 4 emissions

Canada Mining Showcase

Indigenous Partnerships – the Key to Success in Canada’s Critical Minerals Sector

Indigenous peoples are the stewards, rights holders, and in many cases, title holders to the land upon which mineral development takes place. As such, Indigenous peoples are important partners in the development of our critical minerals value chains. Indigenous communities and businesses are demonstrating the value they add through collaboration with investors throughout the mine’s lifecycle - whether providing supplies and services, helping de-risk projects by sharing knowledge of the land and resources. As equity investors in projects, Indigenous communities are ensuring meaningful ownership and economic participation, while helping investors align with the needs of communities and speed up timelines.

Through examples and insights from Indigenous business and community leaders, elders, mining companies, and government, this panel will explore the breadth of partnerships between Indigenous communities and critical mineral projects located in Canada, their unique advantages and considerations for investors.

Objectives

  • Building awareness on the role and importance of respect for Indigenous and treaty rights, and meaningful engagement, partnership and collaboration with Indigenous peoples in critical mineral development in Canada;
  • Through examples, showcase various types of partnerships that can exist between mining sector investors and Indigenous peoples, and their advantages and considerations;
  • Highlight support by the Government of Canada to enable and improve participation of Indigenous peoples

Nigeria: Unveiling the Hidden Treasures in the Solid Minerals sector

Nigeria, often known for its oil and gas resources, is now emerging as a significant player in the Mining Industry. This panel aims to shed light on the abundant mineral resources, investment opportunities, regulatory framework, and sustainable development initiatives in Nigeria's Mining Sector.

1. Opening Remarks by Dele Alake, Honourable Minister of Solid Minerals Development, Nigeria

Topic: Overview of Nigeria's Mining Policy and Regulatory Framework, Government's Commitment to attracting Investment, and Sustainable Development in the Sector. (10 mins)

2. Panel Session:

Community Involvement for Socio-Economic Development: 

One of the key elements in Nigeria's mining sector is the active engagement of local communities for socio-economic development. This strategy not only fosters positive relationships between mining companies and communities but also contributes significantly to the sustainable growth of the sector.

Financing Options Available for Mining Projects in Nigeria and the Role of the Solid Minerals Development Fund:

Securing financing for mining projects in Nigeria is crucial for their success. Various financing options are available, including traditional banks, investment firms, and public-private partnerships. The Solid Minerals Development Fund (SMDF) plays a pivotal role in providing financial support and incentives to promote mining activities. It's essential to explore these financing avenues to unlock the full potential of Nigeria's mineral resources.

Available Geoscientific Data:

Access to accurate and up-to-date geoscientific data is critical for informed decision-making in the mining sector. Nigeria boasts a wealth of geological and geoscientific information that is readily accessible. These data sources include geological maps, mineral occurrence maps, and reports from the Nigerian Geological Survey Agency (NGSA). Such data are invaluable for exploration, resource estimation, and attracting investment.

Transparent and Efficient Mineral Title Administration:

Transparency and efficiency in mineral title acquisition are essential for fostering investor confidence and responsible resource development. Nigeria has made significant strides in establishing a transparent mineral title acquisition system. This system ensures that licenses and permits are granted through a clear and accountable process, reducing bureaucracy and corruption. This transparent approach is critical in attracting investment and promoting ethical mining practices.

Keynote Panel: Nature Positive Mining – Can You Extract Resources but Also be a Defender of the Natural Environment?

“It's very hard to make a hole in the ground nature-positive,” Rohitesh Dhawan, CEO of CMM, says. “When you're making a hole in the ground, you're going to disturb nature.”

“Less than 0.1%” of the world’s total landmass. Compare that to agriculture, at “somewhere close to 50%”, relatively speaking, the industry’s planetary footprint is a “small portion” of the whole.

“For all the metals and minerals we produce, it’s remarkable how little of the world's land we disturb,” Dhawan says. “But – and it's a big ‘but’ – often where we mine happens in areas where nature is very sensitive to change.”

Issues discussed include:

  • Reviewing successful rehabilitation efforts to offset damage in one area with investments in another
  • What can be done at the small-scale/artisanal mining end?
  • How can nature positive narrative be communicated with shareholders to avoid it being perceived as an oxymoron? Are some ecosystems so fragile that they can never be returned to their former state?
  • Incorporating the impact on local communities into the planning
  • Reviewing the TNFD (Taskforce for Natural Financial Disclosures). What standards and regulations are in place? Are any further required?
  • Why should this matter to investors?

Panel Discussion: Adapting Water Management Strategies to Deal With the Threat of Climate Change

Mining has always been heavily dependent on water.

Without water, the extraction of copper, platinum group metals, diamonds and other valuable products would be practically impossible. But water is becoming increasingly scarce: with a predicted shortfall of 40% by 2030, exacerbated by climate change, The shortage of clean, fresh water represents the greatest global societal and economic risk over the next decade.

What technologies are being designed to encourage processing with less/no water? How can we reduce water waste in mining operations?

Issues discussed include:

  • Increasing water efficiency with a closed-loop recycling system
  • Improving the measurement of evaporation rates to conserve more water
  • How can innovations in geothermal help water management?
  • Using low-cost dry tailings disposal to limit water loss
  • Innovating with dry separation techniques that use less water
  • New thinking to use less water when separating waste rock from ore
  • Applying strong and transparent corporate water governance
  • Managing water at operations effectively

Fireside Chat: Can the Industry Invent Itself Out of EV Supply Chain Challenges and Shortages?

Donald Sadoway is a professor emeritus of materials chemistry at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is a noted expert on batteries and has done significant research on improving the performance and longevity of portable power sources. In parallel, he is an expert on the extraction of metals from their ores and the inventor of molten oxide electrolysis, which has the potential to produce crude steel without the use of carbon reductant thereby eliminating greenhouse gas emissions.

Donald Sadoway is also Pure Lithium’s Co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer, which aims to make lithium-metal anodes less expensive by using the cheapest form of lithium–lithium sulphate.

Issues discussed include:

  • Are lithium-ion batteries a TINA (There Is No Alternative)? Or should the mining industry be thinking about alternatives?
  • What minerals must be mined, and what minerals can be substituted?
  • What is the link between battery technology, democracy and progress?

Keynote Panel: Reviewing the EU Critical Minerals Act: Status, Opportunities and Challenges for the Mining Industry

President Von Der Leyen announced the Critical Raw Materials Act during her 2022 State of the Union speech, where she called to address the EU's dependency on imported critical raw materials by diversifying and securing a domestic and sustainable supply of critical raw materials

What will the Act mean for the mining industry?

Issues discussed include:

  • What are governments willing to do to secure critical raw materials? offtakes? Investment, and if so, how? Specialist funds? Directly? Sovereign support?
  • What do the EU Critical Raw Materials Act and Green Industrial Plan mean for the mining industry? How does it compare to the US Inflation Reduction Act?

Keynote Panel: How Can the Industry Shorten the Gap From Exploration to Production? Why Does the Lassonde Curve Still Take 16 Years? New Thinking in Financing, Technology, Collaboration and Innovation

A recurring challenge the industry faces is the lack of new discoveries and mines coming into production. Easy discoveries have become exhausted, and Miners have become averse to grassroots projects in “risky” jurisdictions. To paraphrase JFK, we do mining because it is hard, not because it is easy. What needs to change in exploration today to meet the demands of Resourcing Tomorrow?

Issues discussed include:

  • “There is no such thing as failure. Just learning many times”. How can we explore better? “Drill it or kill it?” when to greenlight projects and when to give up
  • How can we use technology better?
  • How can we collaborate better?
  • How can we finance better?
  • In 1956 a copper mine took 4 years to get permitted. In 2022 it took 14 years on average. Why is permitting policy often out of sync with government policy towards critical minerals, and what can be changed?

Discontinuous improvement and its importance in mining.

For a business to survive it needs Continuous Improvement.

For a business to lead it needs Discontinuous Improvement.

In this presentation Kal Ruberg discusses some of the challenges of the mining industry not thinking in a systemic way and how short-termism does not help the industry reach its long-term objectives such as net-zero. Kal’s presentation will demonstrate that by adopting discontinuous improvement, mining companies can achieve a paradigm shift in innovation, and with that real, measurable revolutionary change in their business.

Towards the Circular Economy; Recycling and Other Practical Solutions

  • 12:00 - 12:40

  • |
  • Wed, 29 Nov
Keynote Panel: How Are Mining Companies Grasping the Circularity Opportunity?

A true economy must be implemented ‘from the ground up’ The circular economy is often seen as focused on reducing the input of raw materials to reduce waste. Yet recycling rates for many metals remain low, with far too much ending up as waste. However, recycling alone will not be enough for us to meet demand. Despite the importance of recycling in helping realise the durability of metals, we need to better understand how it risks establishing an unjust transition, like any model that eliminates primary sources of materials. 

The journey towards making mining a circular process is already underway, and it has great potential to drive growth and a positive contribution to both people and the planet. The mining industry needs to establish a systemic approach to the circular economy very strategically and deliberately that builds on that rather than stops it in its tracks.

Issues discussed include:

  • How will circularity change the way we think about mining and its supply chains?
  • What are the gains to be made in product circularity and process circularity?
  • We could see different business or circularity models evolving around specific commodities.
  • From theory to practice: what does mining in a circular economy really mean? How do mining business models need to change? How can the industry move from 30% by 2030 as a static business model to a dynamic one? What role will renewable energy solutions (green hydrogen, solar, recycling) play?
  • Balancing miner’s technical and financial requirements with social and environmental aspects. What is the role of local communities?
  • What is the role of governments in helping enable mining’s role in the circular economy?

Issues discussed include:

  • Where are the greatest opportunities in recycling for miners and investors?
  • Recycling of products already in use
  • Electric battery recycling
  • Mine tailings recycling 
  • Does recycling and circularity require a different mindset on behalf of the miners? If so, how?
  • What are the key steps in the recycling process across the mining supply chain?
  • Bridging the communication gap between the corporate head office and the mine site to make recycling a reality

Positive CSM (Critical and Strategic Minerals) Track record: Québec Policies and Strategies for the mining industry

The Government of Québec, last year’s winner for most improved jurisdiction by Mines and Money, has built a unique business environment favorable to mining project development through a series of coordinated policies and participation by crown corporations. The focus on critical and strategic minerals has yielded several significant developments such as the newest active lithium producer in North America and the newest scandium producer in North America, and one of the largest new discoveries of lithium in the world with Patriot Battery Metals’ Corvette property, in which Albemarle has become a strategic partner. This panel will highlight how mobilization by Québec has yielded not just a CSM plan, but a positive track record.

Keynote Panel: From ‘Social License to Operate’ to ‘Social License to Market’

In the last few years, miners have sought to build a “social license to operate” by developing relationships with communities and governments. However, as global needs evolve, the industry must now also consider both investor and consumer concerns about a responsible value chain to obtain a “social license to market”.

Issues discussed include: 

  • How have stakeholder expectations evolved /changed? 
  • How do you build successful relationships?  
  • Can governments and miners collaborate better to ‘mine for good’? Do we know what that means?
  • How can you make positive the societal and human capital?
  • What standards should miners follow? Is there one size fits all?
  • The role of local procurement? Global procurement?

Keynote Panel: Mining For Purpose: How Can Mining Be an Agent for Socio-Economic Change and Drive Shared Purpose and Value via Stakeholder Engagement?”

It’s often said that the most challenging part about opening a new mine isn’t getting the raw materials out of the ground, it’s managing the complex relationship with all the stakeholders, particularly those that are part of the mine’s landscape.

Issues discussed include:

  • What does “effective” mean?
  • Identifying the “right” approach: identifying the stakeholders, their concerns and interests.
  • Dealing with mining disputes and legal issues on the ground
  • Identifying legacy issues with previous activities/owners.
  • Clarifying goals and objectives for engagement for you and for them … what does that mean? 
  • What does success look like, and how do you get there?
  • How does the company engage its internal teams to engage with the external stakeholders on the ground?

Keynote Panel: Trust Is the Most Precious of All Commodities – How Can It Be Built Throughout the Entire Mining Value Chain?

Trust is the one commodity that can’t be mined but is critical to the growth of the mining industry. Yet, in many surveys, mining comes bottom when compared to other verticals when it comes to trust. What can we do to address the trust deficit?

Issues discussed include:

  • Understanding is not trust – what is the public’s understanding of the mining industry, and what practical steps can be taken to address misconceptions 
  • Concrete examples of where trust was gained and lost; what were the bottom line/revenue benefits?
  • Building the ‘triangle of trust’ between governments, miners and investors
  • Innovation happens at the speed of trust. The need for trust between competitors and the importance of co-creation 
  • Communicating better with shareholders. Building a better narrative
  • Why are some sectors, banking, for example, given a free pass when it comes to trust, but mining isn’t?

Keynote Panel: How Can Mining Appeal More to Green Funds and Non-Traditional Resource Investors?

Can ESG save the mining industry? With many viewing the sector as being significantly undervalued, why hasn’t the necessity for critical minerals broken down the barriers? If the problem is a reputational risk, then how can this be mitigated?

If ESG is now being widely adopted by mining companies, why hasn’t money flowed in from non-traditional natural resource investors? What needs to change? 

Issues discussed include:

  • What’s still preventing ESG funds from investing in mining?
  • How does the sector screen on both footprint and handprint solutions 
  • If ESG ratings are the solution to raising money from finance, why is the cost of capital so high?
  • What ESG questions are end investors / LPs asking institutional investors / GPs before allocating funds?
  • How can ESG reporting be improved? Avoiding the common mistakes of greenwashing and green hushing

Commodity Insight: Analysts Predict We Will Need an Extra 6.5 Million Tonnes of Copper by 2035, Where Will It Come From?

With a structural supply deficit are we entering the ‘Copper Age’? Where are the best mining investment opportunities in copper to meet demand? Existing tier discoveries or untapped exploration opportunities.

Issues discussed include:

  • What are some of the possible demand scenarios over the next 10 years? On the supply side, what is happening to meet evolving demand; are there viable substitutes for copper and are there any potential technology game-changers in copper extraction? 
  • Copper has traditionally flattered to deceive as a base metal. In view of this, is it different this time around?
  • A closer look at China’s demand fundamentals
  • What will be the impact of copper recycling on demand?
  • What are the differences in investment opportunity and exposure to copper via the majors, mid-tier copper specialists, juniors and ETFs and the associated upside and downside risks involved.
  • Are particular types of deposit and jurisdiction better suited to either majors or juniors and what sort of deposit / jurisdiction combinations operating approaches by majors and juniors should investors look for or avoid? 
  • In view of the discussion of types of possible copper investment company, types of deposit and jurisdiction, briefly, where should investors focus lie and why?

Next Generation Leaders Forum

Our Next Gen Leader programme in 2022 attracted over 100 students and graduates to the event. We targeted not universities offering mining degrees (Imperial, Camborne, Dundee) but tangential degrees (geology, business, engineering, health and safety) from the likes of Oxford, Bristol, Leicester, East Anglia, Southampton, St. Andrews and Birkbeck College.

Our mission at Resourcing Tomorrow is to show how mining is an inclusive industry which offers opportunities for everyone. What degree or qualifications you have, whatever your background is, there is a place in the mining industry for you.
