This session offers a closer look at critical and strategic minerals (CSMs) mined as by-products, such as cobalt, scandium and rare earth elements, and explores mining and industrial projects that add value to the ore by focusing on minerals that would otherwise end up in tailings. Experts will bring you up to speed on the main types of value-added CSMs and the mineralization systems that host these resources. They will also present key examples of the development of some of these auxiliary substances. The session will shed light on these new opportunities, specifically for CSMs, in terms of distribution, risk, markets and other factors.
