Energy Metals: A Modern Day Gold Rush
Cobalt and lithium are often referred to as “energy metals”. They are the primary constituents, along with graphite, of lithium-ion batteries, the fastest growing segment of the battery market. There is a lot of hype in this space, however, demand growth is strong and expected to continue.
The electric vehicle industry is driving up demand for batteries, and the raw materials used to make them.
Cobalt has not been mined in the US since 1971. USGS reports claim that the government stockpile has 301 tonnes remaining.
Cobalt is one of 3 key minerals used to make Tesla battery packs.
