The assembled panel of experts will discuss the mining industry’s fascination with the Electric Vehicle (EV) and the promise it holds for growth in various commodities. Commodities like lithium, cobalt and graphite, and various rare earths, which were not on the radar 5 years ago, as well as more basic commodities like copper and nickel, are all being positively impacted by expectations around the EV but is this a fad or a seismic shift for the mining industry.

Guest Speakers:
Jon Hykawy, PhD, Lithium battery materials and markets expert
Constantine Karayannopoulos, Chair, Neo Performance Materials Inc. (Rare Earths)
Trent Mell, CEO, First Cobalt
Carlos Vicens, CFO, Neo Lithium Corp.
Dan Weir, CEO, DNI Metals Inc. (Graphite)
