Hunstman Exploration (TSX-V:HMAN) owns a strong, prospective portfolio of battery metal projects in a stable, low-risk jurisdiction. The company is well-financed, is led by an experienced team, and is aggressively advancing its assets, which collectively host copper, cobalt, nickel, and vanadium mineralization. Hunstman Exploration is pursuing a business model that delivers direct and long-term leverage to the price appreciation in nickel and cobalt, three principal materials in EV and energy storage batteries.
The battery metal sector is overly-reliant on high-risk mining jurisdictions such as the DRC, the Philippines and South America and this has created a vulnerable supply chain. In contrast, the Company plans to become a leader in the battery metals sector by advancing its portfolio in Western Australia – a growing hub of battery metal production – while also reviewing new acquisition opportunities.
