GCP has worked with a large variety of companies including producers of gold, iron ore and tin, and clients with advanced development projects in gold and battery minerals including graphite, HPA, copper, zinc, and nickel, as well clients with phosphate & potash, iron ore, iron sands, kaolin, mineral sands and oil & gas projects.

We have worked in the battery minerals markets since 2015. We believe that the specialised markets for many of the critical minerals are well suited for GC Partners’ skill set. The market participants in these minerals are often less well known to the public, clients and other advisory firms. Our experience is gained from our large network of relationships combined with detailed research ensuring that there is a large, qualified audience.

Introduction

Introduction

  • GC Partners has worked with a large variety of clients including producers of gold, iron ore and tin, and clients with advanced development projects in gold and battery minerals including graphite, HPA, copper, zinc, and nickel, as well clients with rare earth, phosphate & potash, iron ore, iron sands, kaolin, mineral sands and oil & gas projects
  • In 2022, an even greater emphasis was placed by globally governments on seeking diversification of their supply chains for various critical minerals. Whilst these critical minerals are considered vital for the economic well-being of the world’s major and emerging economies, their supply may be at risk due to geological scarcity, geopolitical issues, trade policy or other factors
  • GC Partners is in contact with many of the key participants in the supply chains based in the key mining, production, manufacturing, product trading, and investment & finance centres internationally that have a strong interest in the various metals & minerals that are the subject of development projects.

Critical Minerals

  • GC Partners is a specialist in Critical Minerals having spent the last ten years working with critical mineral developers
  • GC Partners believes that Critical Minerals underpin many aspects of modern life, from mobile phones & computers to wind turbines, fighter jets and solar panels
  • In recent years, the U.S. Department of Energy established new initiatives to accelerate supply chain innovation. This includes critical minerals processing and associated technology. In 2022 the US Geological Survey (USGS) released the final list of 50 critical minerals that the domestic economy requires for economic and national security. The new list builds on the initial 2018 version, adding 15 new minerals to the list and removing four others
  • In 2022, the UK stated that a secure supply is essential & its first ever national strategy will boost the industry & protect companies & jobs
  • All major manufacturing nations in Europe and Asia are seeking a stable long-term and secure supply from stable geopolitical jurisdictions as an economic imperative.

Rare Earths

  • Like many other countries, the U.S. and Europe are seeking to fix their rare earth import dependency with a mission to have more control over their individual rare earth magnet supply chain
  • Permanent magnets, commonly using a neodymium-iron-boron chemistry, are one of the hidden enablers of modern technology, powering everything from robots to refrigerators to laptop speakers
  • They also help power electric vehicle (EV) and wind turbine motors, placing them at the heart of the Energy Transition.

Battery Minerals

  • GC Partners has worked in the Battery Minerals markets since 2015. We believe that the specialised markets for many of the critical minerals are well suited for GC Partners’ skill set. Other than lithium, the strategic market participants in these minerals are often less well known to the public, clients and other advisory firms. Our experience is gained from our large network of relationships combined with detailed research ensuring that there is a large, qualified audience.
  • If the client transaction counterparties, being other market participants such as miners, producers, manufacturers, consolidators, fabricators, traders and investors are not already known to us, we have a proven capability to identify the key players and engage with them. We have a track record of identifying investment grade corporate counterparties that other industry players have not engaged with as potential partners, where GC Partners has secured sizable offtake MOUs and agreements, and finance.
