This month, The Assay focuses on the mineral rich African continent, where the mining industry has typically been a major facilitator of economic development for the region. Now, we are witnessing government entities, corporations, and communities working together to ensure the sustainable mining of metals and minerals. We explore how the current energy transition has created massive growth opportunities in the critical minerals and battery metals spaces on the continent. Also, Sustainable Capital notes the changing perceptions of African mining and how to perform investment due diligence on regional projects. We present an array of two-page company profiles showcasing junior miners with projects across the African continent.
