Critical Materials Corner: Jack Lifton, Christopher Ecclestone and Maritz Smith on the escalating EV demand and price for tin
In this episode of the Critical Materials Corner with Jack Lifton, Jack is joined by Maritz Smith, CEO of Alphamin Resources Corp. (TSXV: AFM) and Christopher Ecclestone, Principal and mining strategist at Hallgarten & Company to discuss the ‘price rally’ in tin. A critical material, they discuss the increasing demand for tin in the EV market, the rising shortfall and why “tin is the glue that holds the electronics and technology world together.”
In this InvestorIntel interview, which may also be viewed on YouTube (click here to subscribe to the InvestorIntel Channel), Maritz went on to explain why there is a shortfall in tin supply. Alphamin’s Mpama North is the world’s highest-grade tin resource – about four times higher than most other operating tin mines in the world. Currently producing 4% of the world’s mined tin, Alphamin is the first tin major since the 1970s. Maritz added that Alphamin has robust margins and cash flow and the Company is allocating internal cash flow to fund drilling campaigns to double its current orebody and discover another high-grade deposit south of Alphamin’s operating Bisie mine.
