The Road to Electrification

Critical Cobalt

The secret is out, electric vehicle adoption is happening, and it’s happening now in a big way. In fact, the rate of EV ownership globally is exceeding all expectations. Billions of dollars have been allocated to electrifying the automotive sector and it’s just the beginning. There isn’t a day that EVs aren’t on page one of all the major mainstream media.

Tesla may have started the modern electric rEVolution, but now the majors are taking centre stage and are doing so in mass and with the intent to dominate. Volkswagen, Ford, Daimler, BMW, BYD amongst others have entered the electric vehicle race. They have committed to and are part of the bigger movement of curbing pollution and bettering our environment, a motion that is being enforced by all the world’s leading, and perhaps more importantly, emerging nations.

The road to electrification has been paved ...

The other secret, the one that we haven’t been let in on in entirety, but the one that provides us the opportunity to financially profit from this once in a century global movement ... I’d like to share that secret with you, and it’s actually very simple.

Invest in the materials critical to the impending wave, no, the tsunami, of EVs coming to market. Lithium, nickel, graphite, manganese, tin, aluminum, copper to name a few, but, there’s at least one more that I call critical ...

The one that has experienced the most price volatility, is the most supply constrained, and the one that researchers are trying to thrift out because of it. That critical energy storage mineral is cobalt.

But the fact is, cobalt is critical. It’s critical not just for the thermal stability and range necessary crucial to the proven battery chemistry used EVs but also for its key role in numerous metal applications in growing sectors like aerospace, magnetics, medical devices and super-alloys. It’s critical, not because its rare (it’s not) but because it’s produced nearly exclusively as a byproduct, dominantly sourced from one very challenged country and refined almost in monopoly by another. It’s critical because securing supply in a safe, ethical manner is in question while the demand implications are real and they are now and they will be tomorrow.

The path to electrification is very much dependent on and being powered by cobalt.

It’s because of this that THE TIME IS NOW to invest in CRITICAL COBALT.
