TGDG Mini-symposium - Turning the switch on: The geology of lithium-ion battery materials and how to evaluate risk in today's markets

The Toronto Geological Discussion Group presents a Mini-symposium on the geology of lithium-ion battery materials. Based on member feedback and the popularity and projected demand for Li-ion batteries, this video series focuses on the three main mineral components of some Li-ion batteries – Lithium, Cobalt and Carbon. The presentations provide an overview of the Li-battery market, three specific deposits, and the downstream mineral processing. These ideas are brought together in a panel discussion. Recorded on April 26, 2015.

This playlist includes all the talks from this Mini-Symposium:
