Battery metals influencer Mitchell Smith on lithium-ion batteries, Tesla’s GigaFactory and GEMC
In a recent InvestorIntel interview, Peter Clausi speaks with Mitchell Smith, President, CEO and Director of Global Energy Metals Corp. (TSXV: GEMC | OTCQB: GBLEF) (‘GEMC’), about the acquisition of an 85% interest in the Lovelock Mine and Treasure Box Projects located on the doorstep of the world’s largest lithium-ion battery production plant, the Gigafactory One that Tesla Motors Ltd. and partner Panasonic Corp. have built in Nevada, USA.
In this InvestorIntel interview, which may also be viewed on YouTube (click here to subscribe to the InvestorIntel Channel), Mitchell started by saying that the COVID-19 pandemic “has highlighted the importance to regionalize supply and localization of new supply chain of critical minerals.” Mitchell, who was recently ranked as one of the top influencers in the battery minerals sector, continued by saying that the projects have very high grades of nickel, cobalt and copper deposit and have historically produced materials grading 14% cobalt and 12% nickel. He added, “because of fragmented ownership the projects were never explored using modern technique.”
