At The Northern Miner’s Canadian Mining Symposium in London, industry experts discussed the need for a new approach to innovation in mining. They emphasized the importance of utilizing existing technology in unconventional ways, much like utilizing individual blocks from a Lego kit to create various solutions.

Ana Cabral, CEO of Sigma Lithium Resources (TSXV: SGML; NASDAQ: SGML), highlighted their achievement in producing spodumene concentrate, a key component of lithium-ion batteries, without any carbon emissions or the use of tailings ponds. Moreover, the company successfully recycled all its water, ensuring sustainable mining practices. These advancements were discussed during the EY-sponsored panel, titled “The Future Of Mining – Unlocking Opportunities for the Next Generation.”
