Shearman & Sterling Mining & Metals Group partners Augusto Ruiloba, Robert O’Leary and Cynthia Urda Kassis discussed the key opportunities and challenges to meeting the global demand for critical minerals amid the worldwide energy transition.
The authors commented on four overarching factors being focused on by investors and companies: uncertainties in the critical minerals and downstream markets, environmental and social obligations, near term limitations in processing capacity and constraints in available experienced resources.
Notwithstanding the above, the authors explain that enormous opportunities are available for mining industry stakeholders who are able to effectively manage the market and investment challenges related to mining critical minerals.
Global Mining Review covers news and trends in the mining industry, from exploration and development to production and sustainability.
