Announcing the Launch of the Critical Minerals Institute for Companies and Experts Focused on Electric Vehicles, Green Energy and Secure Supply Chains
Toronto, August 15, 2022 – It is with great pleasure that the Critical Minerals Institute (CMI) announces its founding as an international organization for critical mineral companies and professionals designed to address relevant issues relating to the establishment of secure supply chains from mine to manufacturing in not just rare earths but all 50 vitally important critical minerals.
Focused on battery materials and electric vehicles, along with the use of critical minerals for energy and green energy production, CMI Founder Tracy Weslosky explains: “With uncertainties in Russia and China escalating concerns around secure supply chains, governments have been offering sizable incentives for everything from facilitating faster production timelines to advancing extraction technology processes. Unfortunately, the required infrastructure or expertise is often lacking. CMI was created to offer education, collaboration and an online platform designed to solve these issues through both online and in-person networking events.”
“There has already been incredible interest in the Critical Minerals Institute,” Founder and Executive Chairman Jack Lifton said. “From the first time we mentioned it to our extensive network of industry contacts, we have literally been inundated with calls from government, public companies and industry experts wanting to support and participate in this important initiative.”
With over 300,000 combined hours of professional experience in the critical minerals sector, Executive Chairman Jack Lifton is backed by the following industry experts on the CMI Board: Peter Clausi, Christopher Ecclestone, Byron W. King, Stephen Lautens, Marc Levier, Alister Macdonald, Alastair Neill, Melissa Sanderson and Tracy Weslosky.
The Critical Minerals Institute is planning to hold its first summit on November 9th in Toronto, bringing together international industry leaders, governments, and companies at the historic National Club to discuss emerging trends in battery materials, technology metals, defense metals, ESG technologies, the general EV market, and the use of critical minerals for energy and green energy production. The Critical Minerals Summit (CMS) has confirmed that Constantine Karayannopoulos of Neo Performance Materials Inc. (TSX: NEO) will be the keynote speaker, along with Charlie Angus, MP, author of “Cobalt: The Making of a Mining Superpower.” For more information, go to www.CriticalMineralsInstitute.com or to request a delegate pass, click here [Secure a Critical Minerals Summit Delegate Pass – $250 (criticalmineralsinstitute.com)]
