The global energy transition is changing the mining industry. Miners are shifting focus from a China-led commodity supercycle focused on industrialization and urbanization to a new cycle driven by clean energy and renewable energy technologies. Forward facing metals play a significant role in this dynamic. We uncover what are likely to be attractive investment opportunities in gold, silver, uranium, lithium, copper and more.
