Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / November 23, 2023 / Global Energy Metals Corporation TSXV:GEMC | OTCQB:GBLEF | FSE:5GE1 (“Global Energy Metals”, the “Company” and/or “GEMC”), a multi-jurisdictional, multi-commodity critical mineral exploration and development company focused on growth-oriented battery metal projects supporting the global transition to clean energy, is pleased to announce that President & CEO, Mitchell Smith has been invited to participate as a panelist at the upcoming Energy and Mines Pathways to Net Zero Mining Summit being held in Toronto, ON. Mitchell will be a featured speaker on the Critical Minerals Day 2 of the conference and will provide insight on how North America can become a leader in critical minerals mining and build a value chain to support global demand for clean energy technologies and electric vehicles.
Now in its 12th year, Energy and Mines is where miners come to benchmark their net zero strategies; network with peers and decarbonization experts, and hear about the very latest technologies and solutions.
Mr. Smith will participate in the panel entitled "Realizing a Sustainable North American Battery Metals Supply Chain” on Wednesday, November 29, 2023 from 2:40 PM to 3:30 PM. This panel will offer insight on the opportunities and challenges for realizing Canada and North America’s ambitions of becoming a leader in the critical materials supply chain from mine to market following the Canadian and US Government’s incentives to support the development of domestic critical minerals value chains. The panel will address the following key questions:
- What are the biggest gaps in North America’s battery metals supply chain and how are current government policies including the IRA and Critical Minerals Strategy addressing these gaps?
- What are the main obstacles companies along the battery metals value chain face, and what are the potential solutions being considered?
- How are government policies being utilized to incentivize industry growth and promote sustainable practices throughout the battery metals value chain, and what additional measures could be implemented to further these goals?
- To address the EV and battery industries’ demands for carbon-neutral materials and supply chains, what actions are companies along the battery metals value chain taking to meet climate and ESG targets?
- What types of infrastructure investments are needed to secure value chains from mines to manufacturing; what needs to be done and what is the best way to get there?
- How are industry players collaborating to develop a comprehensive and sustainable end-to-end battery metals value chain, and what additional steps could be taken to further this goal?
The panelists will include:
- Zeeshan Syed, President, Avalon Advanced Materials
- Jayson Tymko, President and CEO, Sinova Global
- Brent Nykoliation, Executive Vice President, NextSource Materials
- Bliss Baker, Vice Chair, Sussex Strategy Group
- Mitchell Smith, CEO & Director, Global Energy Metals Corporation | Director, Battery Metals Association of Canada
The session will be chaired by:
- Camellia Moors, Energy Transition Metals Reporter and Energy Evolution Podcast Correspondent, S&P Global Commodity Insights
The era-defining shift from fossil fuels to clean energy is set to deliver an unprecedented new boom for commodities, and an opportunity for investors, as a range of critical minerals finally get the attention they deserve due to their essential role in delivering emissions-free power and transport. To meet global climate change targets, demand for minerals and metals used in green technologies such as rechargeable batteries used in vehicle electrification is expected to rise exponentially, and yet these irreplaceable building blocks enabling the energy transition, are expected to be in short supply, in part due to concentration of production and processing.
But as the global initiative to transition away from many carbon-based forms of energy proceeds, so too does the urgency arise for sustainable sources for critical components that go into these green technologies.
Canada, through collaboration with the United States and other strategic nation partners, has benefit to having the critical mineral reserves, skilled workforce, infrastructure, technology and clean energy necessary to fuel a new lithium ion battery ecosystem.
During the event, Mitchell will represent both Global Energy Metals as well as the Battery Metals Association of Canada, of which he is a Director of, to share an outlook on the fundamental changes impacting the battery metals market. During the panel discussion he intends to emphasize how Canada, and North America as a whole, can play a crucial role, through companies like Global Energy Metals, in identifying strategic opportunities and be globally competitive in the sector as demand for critical materials grows and the push to regionalize supply chains is prioritized in an effort to meet demand for new energy technologies.
