The energy transition is driven by the objective to help mitigate climate change through a progressive global switching to lower carbon energy sources. Minerals such as lithium, copper, cobalt and rare earth elements will be needed in greater amounts for electrification, infrastructure upgrades as well as for providing the raw components for electric vehicles, renewable energy generation, battery storage and modern devices.
However, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find large tonnage and high-grade mineral deposits at or near the surface, especially of commodities that will increasingly be needed for the energy transition. We believe those prospecting to expand mineral portfolios will need to increasingly look deeper and beyond known occurrences. Therefore, new ways of thinking about exploration and, ultimately, production will need to be adopted.
Working with our mining partners, we are taking applicable geological subsurface screening methods and digital tools from the hydrocarbon industry and applying them within a broader approach to mineral system exploration to help guide the explorationist in the right location.
