Industrial and Tech Minerals
The use of industrial and tech minerals is on the upswing. Lithium and graphite, which are used to manufacture batteries, are highly sought-after and offer interesting prospects for mine operators. Industrial minerals are also used in a range of other products, such as agricultural fertilizers, concrete and plastics. The rapidly-growing world population has a direct impact on demand for consumer products and, by extension, minerals.
The abundance of Canada’s mineral resources, combined with improved deposit processing, plays a big role in strengthening the industrial and tech minerals sector.
