    'It's just outlandish' - Matt Watson on EV uptake and mineral demand

    48:45

    Never mind the current rush into electric vehicles, coming regulations are going to drastically increase EV adoption and mineral demand, said Matt Watson, founder of Precious Metals Commodity Management.On Friday Watson recorded Kitco Roundtable with Mining Audiences Manager Michael McCrae and Kitco correspondent Paul Harris.In the seven months up to July, global sales of electric vehicles were up 150% to just over 3 million units, compared to the same period in 2020, with about 1.3 million sold in China, according to the consultancy Rho Motion and reported by Reuters. And in Norway sales of EVs have been so successful, trends point to 100% market share by spring at the expense of internal combustion engine sales.Consequently battery metals have been on a tear. Lithium is up 159% for the year based on Benchmark Lithium Price Tracker.Watson estimates that EV penetration currently sits between 4% to 5%."I think the message is: you haven't seen anything yet. By 2030 to hit the zero emission mandates that have been put into place by different governments, 25% penetration is needed," said Watson."And then jumping ahead to 2035, then the numbers get really silly. Then you need 62% of the global feet transitioned to EVs.""In terms of total aggregate mineral demand [to build these EVs], it's just outlandish."

    'Get out your bell bottoms and your disco records' - Erfle on stagflation

    45:57

    A second bad jobs report along with spiking energy prices is hinting at stagflation, said Junior Miner Junky editor David Erfle. On Friday Erfle recorded Kitco Roundtable with Mining Audiences Manager Michael McCrae, Kitco correspondent Paul Harris and editor Neils Christensen.The job's report for September was dismal with only 194,000 jobs added last month. The forecast was for a much higher number, ranging from 450,000 to 500,000 new jobs. The preceding August jobs report was also a disappointment.While the jobs report could point to a soft economy, some commodity prices are spiking, notably oil. Reuters reported that Brent crude hit $83.47 a barrel on Wednesday, the highest price for oil since October 2018. A soft economy and inflation are markers of stagflation, which harkens back to the oil shocks of the '70s. "Get out your bell bottoms and your disco records, because that word 'stagflation' is coming back," said Erfle.

Technology is also helping find potential new targets.  "Are there still world-class discoveries can be made? Absolutely!," said McLeod.

    Gold's 'marginal project' problem

    37:09

    The gold sector suffers from a lack of quality projects, said Banyan Gold's CEO Tara Christie. On Friday Christie recorded Kitco Roundtable with Mining Audiences Manager Michael McCrae, Kitco correspondent Paul Harris and editor Neils Christensen.Year-to-date the VanEck Junior Gold Miners ETF is off 30% to $17.57. Harris said too many gold companies make the sector harder for investors to navigate. Barrick Gold CEO Mark Bristow wants to see more sector consolidation, according to Reuters. Still, gold prices have been good, and producers are cashed up for acquisitions."I think the bigger problem is lack of quality projects. We need new projects, not just regurgitating old projects," said Christie. "The ones that have marginal projects--why would majors want to buy them if the price of gold goes down?"Banyan Gold is a junior focused on the Yukon. Its 9,230 ha Aurex-McQuesten Property lies in close proximity to both Victoria Gold's Eagle Project and Alexco Resource's Keno Hill Silver District.

    48:53

Mugerman was asked why it is so difficult to build a rare earth mine.  "Separating [rare earth] is very hard. There is uranium and thorium included, so you need to get rid of those. You're dealing with fairly low grades. If you want to produce something you have to produce huge amounts of waste [with] very large tailings facilities," said Mugerman.
