Critical Materials Corner with Jack Lifton – Impact of Biden Admin on Rare Earths

In the first episode of the Critical Materials Corner with Jack Lifton, Jack talks about if there is going to be any change in the focus on critical materials under the Joe Biden administration.

In this InvestorIntel video, which may also be viewed on YouTube (click here to subscribe to the InvestorIntel Channel), Jack went on to explain the role of bureaucracy and the US Federal government to drive policies on critical materials to make the US independent of China for critical materials.

Speaking on the electric vehicles sector, Jack said, “The big drive in the US is to get the price of the batteries down.” He continued, “If I were an investor, I would be looking at batteries, battery management, battery raw materials, and also the raw materials for solar panels and wind turbines because these are big pushes by the US government.” He further added, “You can store energy with lithium, cobalt, nickel and manganese. But you can’t make anything move without rare earth permanent magnets.” Speaking on the Department of the Interior’s list of critical materials he explained why copper should be on the list.

Lifton, Smith, Clausi and Ecclestone on the unique challenges and opportunities in the critical materials supply chain

The Technology Metals Show hosts Jack Lifton and Peter Clausi talk to Christopher Ecclestone, Principal and mining strategist at Hallgarten & Company, and Mitchell Smith, President & CEO of Global Energy Metals Corp. (TSXV: GEMC | OTCQB: GBLEF) about the critical materials supply chain and why it is different from the supply chain of any other metal.

Available exclusively to subscribers of the Technology Metals Show, the panel discusses why the recent General Motors  announcement of a $27 billion spend on electric and autonomous vehicles through 2025 is “a trend that we will see a lot more of” according to Mitchell Smith, one of the top influencers in the battery minerals sector, as more companies are looking for localized and ethical sources of cobalt, lithium, rare earths and other critical materials.

In this important discussion Jack Lifton explains the vital relationship between cobalt and copper and nickel mining. With cobalt as a by-product, he added, “unless there is copper and nickel mining, there won’t be any cobalt produced.”

Christopher highlighted the role and techniques for recycling as a source of critical materials, and challenges in securing a reliable supply chain for critical materials.

In the interview, the panel also spends some time discussing MP Materials’ Mountain Pass Mine, and why it illustrates the need for diversification in the rare earths supply chain.
