Episode 34: Lithium interview and Ivanhoe's Kamoa ft. Simon Moores
5 days ago
Matt hits the road to report on-site from Benchmark Mineral Intelligence's lithium-ion supply chain seminar. We sit down to with managing director Simon Moores to talk supply-demand fundamentals in the lithium market, the potential re-emergence of graphite plays, and emerging supply concerns in the cobalt market driven by socio-political volatility in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
On Lesley's Geology Corner we drill into sediment-hosted stratiform copper deposits, which are top of mind following a massive resource update from Robert Friedland's Ivanhoe Mines (TSX: IVN) and it's "historic" Kamoa-Kakula project. We discuss the mineralizing events behind these typically large-scale copper ore bodies, which Lesley says was sort of a post-Archean geological hang over!
