In this PDAC 2023 InvestorIntel interview, George Bauk, Executive Chairman of Valor Resources Limited (ASX: VAL), which has a uranium and rare earths project in the Athabasca Basin in Canada and a growing copper project in Peru, talks to Tracy Weslosky about the chronic shortage of human talent in the critical minerals space
George tells Tracy that after COVID-19 restrictions were lifted and projects were restarted, it became apparent that the expert personnel needed to supply and grow the critical mineral sector was lacking.
He tells Tracy that the pipeline to produce engineers, geologists, and mining-related trades needs to start young, and the industry is not attracting the miners of the future needed to support the exploration and production of critical commodities for a carbon-free world in Tier 1 jurisdictions.
He also talks about how rare earths, lithium, graphite, and copper are the keys to the evolution of new technologies and will continue to grow in demand in the coming years.
