Vale: Electric Vehicle Revolution PresentationFor some time, most of the major automotive companies have been signalling their intention to move to all-electric vehicle production.

However, the race to develop the electric vehicle (EV) battery is already having a major impact on demand for the materials involved.

These include:

  • Nickel
  • Cobalt
  • Aluminium or Magnesium
  • Lithium
  • Copper

In December, the Brazilian-based mining giant, Vale, presented its insights into the implications for energy metal supplies at the Scotia Mining Conference in Toronto.

“We are at a precipice of an Electric Vehicle revolution,” the company states, “and Electric Vehicles will usher in an age of new energy metals.”
