London Mining Agenda Podcast: Benchmark Mineral Intelligence, 04/05/17

The Benchmark Mineral Intelligence World Tour has only been going for a few years but has already established itself as the pace-setter for thought leadership and education in the burgeoning battery metals space. On the agenda when Benchmark managing director and lithium expert Simon Moores joined Mining Journal, along with the firm's cobalt specialist, Caspar Rawles, was the growing level of sophistication around the battery metals conversation; the decline of lithium's popularity over the back of 2016; and the emergence of cobalt as the latest battery metal to capture investor imagination.



On the line this week...

Simon Moores is the founder and managing director of Benchmark Mineral Intelligence, recognised as the foremost authority in lithium, graphite and cobalt.

Caspar Rawles,
Cobalt specialist, Benchmark Mineral Intelligence
