Simon Moores, managing director of battery minerals advisory firm Benchmark Mineral Intelligence, appeared before a U.S. Senate committee for energy and minerals on Feb. 5, 2019, to once again sound the alarm on the lack of a domestic supply chain in the U.S. for the battery minerals lithium, cobalt, nickel and graphite. (With Tesla’s Gigafactory in Nevada being a notable exception.)

The podcast presents 11 minutes of mining-related highlights from the 2.3-hour public hearing, and features comments from, in order of appearance: Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), chairman of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources; Simon Moores; Senator Joe Manchin III (D-West Virginia), ranking member of the committee; Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nevada); Ethan Zindler, head of Americas for Bloomberg New Energy Finance; and Senator Angus S. King, Jr. (D-Maine),

The formal name of the the hearing is “Full Committee Hearing on the Outlook for Energy and Minerals Markets in the 116th Congress” and a link to the entire hearing on video is available at:
