The great ‘batteries gold’ rush is under way as realisation dawns that mining companies have a major part to play in our business.
You did not have to dig deep at last week’s miners’ hoedown in Australia to see that eyes are now on the prize of tapping into the lucrative global battery materials market, as we report this week.
So all that glitters does not have to be gold. And— as we keep on drilling home from here— that includes lead! While Europe’s policy chiefs think the EU is better off without lead, Asian competitors including Amara Raja and Exide India, as you’ll read here, are investing and stealing the march.
