In April, we held our second Resources Innovation Collaboration (RIC) event for the year. It was held online, however all upcoming events are planned to continue face to face.

We were lucky to have three great Alumni members speak at our last event, with the theme focused on backing their commodity. Working across both gold and battery minerals, we had some healthy competitiveness displayed across the panellists. Backing Lithium was Pilbara Minerals CEO Ken Brinsden, backing Nickel was Blackstone Minerals MD Scott Williamson and long time gold supporter Bellevue Gold CEO Darren Stralow.

At such an important time globally, every one of their commodities is critical to what we need on our decarbonisation paths. While not as critical to building batteries, it was very exciting to hear the Bellevue Gold story to be the most sustainable gold miner…. right here in the Goldfields. Thanks again to Ken, Scott and Darren… great work all round on the panel and driving your commodities

We look ahead to June for our next event where WASM:MECE will showcase their research into both battery minerals and also the integration of digital technology into our operations.
