Looking back to the spring of 2020 it is hard to believe how much has changed for junior miners in the battery metals sector in the space of 12 months.
Morale was at rock bottom as the combination of COVID-19 and weak metals prices made conversations around funding for all but the most sparkling projects nigh on impossible.
Turn the clock forward to the present day and the mood is positively buoyant; major governments have doubled down on green initiatives in the wake of COVID, triggering a run on metals prices and fuelling investor demand for companies spanning the breadth of the battery value chain.
Certain junior miners have soared in value and interest in the area only seems to be broadening as mainstream institutions - including the International Energy Agency - seek to highlight the potentially disastrous consequences of underinvestment in battery metals on the transition to net zero emissions.
With that in mind, we have decided to release some of our average on battery metals to a wider audience.
The articles featured in this report provide unique insight into the world's best battery metals projects and generated a huge amount of interest from subscribers at the time of publication.
