Iran moving into rare earths space as part of mining push

Late last year Bloomberg reported plans in Teheran that, if successful, could mean Iran earning more cash from mining than from crude oil. And now we have Iran talking about getting into the rare earths business (and, interestingly, Bloomberg cited REE along with copper and iron ore as Iran’s potential mineral development highlights in that earlier report). Iran is estimated to hold about 7% of the world’s…

More with less: Cleantech is the new religion

cleantech_world
One would think that Cleantech is primarily rooted in science and technology. One would also think that the most important Cleantech decisions are made by smart MBAs in office towers. But in reality the ultimate Cleantech decisions — those decisions that really count, are made at stores like Wal-Mart stores by discriminating customers on Saturday mornings based on four highly integrative criteria: They must be price competitive to…

Broker: Galaxy Resources well placed as a speculative buy

Technology Metals Monthly: Where has all the Rare Earths News gone?

Table1
April 2016 may, hopefully, be acknowledged as the start of the rare earths recovery. Why? Because it’s the first month for a long while where the month has closed and there has been two consecutive weeks of no falls and some raises in the suite of rare earths traded. May not be much; may not be statistically significant; but it’s certainly a possibility worth watching. Also I…

Lithium: the lucky commodity?

Lithium seems to be lucky: it has roared into prominence just when most other things are doing badly, which has given it more pronounced (or at least more noticeable) thrust than probably may have been the case if all boats were rising. Call it the after-burner effect. It is the space capsule that keeps on going when the booster rockets fall away after take-off. In the past,…

Lithium’s great story: 80 years in the making

lithium_Ion_Battery
This is not the first time people have been excited by lithium. The great mass of the investing public has only been on top of the lithium story for little more than a year yet the story has been there for some time, in one form or another. In 2009, for example, Foreign Policy journal, in an article by David J Rothkoff, had a headline reading “The…

Long-range EVs – The Antithesis of Green

4.28.16 Grid
I’m not a big fan of battery powered electric vehicles, or EVs, because I can’t make any of the numbers work without accepting the emotionally appealing premise that EVs can or will be powered by clean renewable energy from the wind and sun. Unfortunately, the cherished presumption that EVs will be charged with renewable power is fatally flawed because it ignores the operating characteristics of the electric grid.…

Tungsten Downunder

Australia_tungsten
I was prompted to revisit this theme due to a nifty transaction in recent days that Almonty Industries Inc. (TSXV: AII) managed to pull off. Almonty, of course, is the consolidator in the industry and one of the assets it corralled into its corner in recent years was the Wolfram Camp mine. Now it has folded this mine into a listed Australian company with the effect that…

John Petersen on the cobalt crisis — and what is wrong with EVs and battery technology

Petersen_John
April 27, 2016 -- Lithium-ion battery and battery storage expert John Petersen this year created something of a sensation on InvestorIntel by putting his finger on a critical problem: there is not enough cobalt available to meet the demand from the growing lithium-ion battery industry. The key point is that just 6% of cobalt comes from primary production, the rest coming as a by-product of nickel and…

China – the great disrupter of commodities markets (and not in a good way)

Another China drama is unfolding (on top of their $30 trillion corporate debt time-bomb, that is). This time it’s wild speculation in commodities that has driven up prices of several metals. So we get one more example of incoherent Chinese economic “policy”. As I write this on a day when news has come that Australia is now in deflation and its dollar has taken a bath, we…
