Strategic Metals and Rare Earths 2014
Demand/supply drivers and strategic metals of the future
The feasibility and commercial viability of strategic metals and rare earths is dependent on the ability to produce these metals at a competitive cost. Beyond the discovery of deposits, the question of how to get strategic metals and rare earths projects to market remains an issue. Costs of extraction, hydrometallurgy and navigating the supply chain are still key concerns for new entrants.
Mining IQ’s 4th Annual Strategic Metals & Rare Earths program will provide unique perspectives from explorers, producers, analysts, and end users. Understand demand/supply drivers for strategic metals of the future and gain insight on how explorers and producers are bringing projects to commercial realisation.
Just a sample of topics we will be discussing:
- Exploration and production techniques for rare earths and strategic metals
- Analyst insight on demand predictions – which minerals will be critical in the future
- How to get your project to market – costs of extraction, processing options, route to market
- An end user approach - how users are procuring and maintaining supply of critical minerals in their operations
Among the minerals our program will cover:
- Rare Earths
- Platinum Group Metals
- Mineral Sands
