Expert Predicts $10,000 Price for Gold

James Puplava, president of Financial Sense Wealth Management, predicts that gold and silver will trade at more than $10,000 and $300 respectively by the end of the decade. Puplava has a history of making relatively accurate gold predictions, correctly forecasting a decade-long bull run in precious metals at the turn of the century when gold was trading at under $300. While Puplava predicted the precious metal would end this run at all-time highs of more than $1,000, gold prices nearly reached $2,000. With the Financial Sense Wealth Management president predicting that gold will trade at higher then $10,000, the market…

Australia’s Biggest Business Event: Global Mining Industry Celebrates 10 Years of IMARC

Sydney, Australia: The world’s mining and resource leaders are gathering in Sydney this week for the 10th International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC), which has grown from humble beginnings to become one of the world’s most important industry conferences and Australia’s largest business event. Chief Executive Officer of Beacon Events, Daniel Kirwin, said IMARC was born at a time when industry conferences provided limited opportunities for leaders to engage, exchange ideas, showcase innovation, establish business partnerships and tackle common challenges.    “IMARC has emerged as one of the top global forums for miners, investors, METS companies and governments, reflecting an industry…

How Junior Mining Firms Can Leverage Current Market Conditions

The junior mining segment has had a rough couple of years, experiencing two years straight of lackluster returns and a losing streak that rivals the segment’s historic gold bear market in from 2011 to 2015. This year has been just as difficult for junior miners as most players in the sector have seen another year of poor performance amid record underinvestment. Investment in the mining sector has been declining for the past decade, and the junior mining sector has felt it the most. Smaller companies typically have less access to capital and have few funding options once traditional capital runs…

IEA Predicts 2030 Peak for Coal, Oil, Gas Energy

The International Energy Agency (IEA) predicts that global demand for coal, natural gas and oil will peak by 2030 amid an “unstoppable” energy transition. According to the agency, carbon pollution from the three fossil fuels will also peak by the end of the decade, thanks to the proliferation of renewable energy. The IEA report predicted that there would be close to 10 times more electric cars than there are now by the end of 2030. Renewable energy sources such as wind and solar will also account for nearly one-half of the worldwide energy mix compared to 30% in 2023. Most…

Swedish Scientists Find Promising Way to Recover Minerals from Discarded EV Batteries

Electric vehicle battery metals are poised to see a major increase in demand over the next couple of decades, thanks to soaring EV adoption. Minerals such as lithium, graphite and cobalt are critical to the development of EV batteries, but their production is almost completely reliant on Chinese companies, something that has left Western pundits and lawmakers extremely worried. Furthermore, the lack of efficient battery recycling techniques makes it incredibly difficult to reuse EV battery minerals and places even more pressure on the world’s already strained supply. According to a team of Swedish researchers, they may have developed a technique…

IMARC 2023: Australia Poised to Take Global Lead in Critical Minerals

The announcement by Prime Minister Anthony Albanese to double the investment in the Critical Minerals Fund sets the scene for this year’s International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) in Sydney next week. The AU$4 billion plan is aimed at expanding the production and processing of critical minerals in Australia to secure the country’s position as a global critical minerals powerhouse. Mr Albanese said Australia is in a strong position to help the global shift to net-zero due to its large deposits of critical minerals. “Australia is committed to building sustainable and secure critical minerals supply chains with the United States. This is central to…

IMARC 2023: Providing an in-depth glance into the opportunities of Mongolia’s mining sector

Rich in natural resources, Mongolia has historically attracted significant foreign investment to its mining sector. Producing primarily coal, copper and gold, the mining industry is a crucial aspect of Mongolia’s economy and a significant contributor to its economic growth. With this growth, however, has come a heavy reliance on the mining sector and a range of environmental, social and economic challenges that the country has never had to grapple with. The International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC), to be held in Sydney from 31 October – 2 November, will see talks from Mongolia’s largest mining companies and associations on the…

China Curbs Graphite Exports, a Move That Could Hamper EV Industry

Last week, the Chinese Ministry of Commerce announced that it would cut graphite exports in a move that has the potential to cripple the global electric vehicle industry. With tensions between China and the United States and its allies rising in recent years, nations such as the U.S. are keen on cutting their reliance on China to limit the Asian country’s leverage in the nascent electric vehicle industry. Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) are powered by lithium-ion batteries and produce zero emissions at the tailpipe, making them a perfect replacement for the internal combustion engine (ICE) cars that currently rule the…

IMARC 2023: How Space is Helping Mining Rise to New Heights

The 2023 International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) in Sydney this month is bringing together two seemingly distinct industries, mining and space exploration, to collaborate on innovations that will take both sectors to new horizons.   Arvind Ramana, Director of Space Technology Uplift at the Australian Space Agency and a feature panellist at IMARC, believes innovations in space are directly applicable to the mission of accelerating efforts to decarbonise the economy.  He highlights the role of space-based technology in detecting and accounting for greenhouse gas emissions, and the importance of space-based sensors in enabling companies and nations to track emissions swiftly and accurately. …
