Strong tailwind from high iron ore and gold prices as indicator for sustainable demand Dr Heinz Rudolf Kubli, Director of SunMirror AG, recently commented: 'Battery technology is expected to evolve from the current lithium-ion battery (LIB) to next-generation high-capacity LIBs, all solid-state batteries, and lithium metal-based batteries, resulting in improvements in energy density, safety, and battery lifespan, as well as reduction in cost. We currently own or are planning to acquire prized sites in Australia that shall be developed with the potential to help enable this transformation. In addition, we would like to see SunMirror expand its strategic metal and mineral portfolio in Europe to provide traceable metals for an increasingly sustainability driven European batteries market for electric vehicles and others powering next-gen consumer and industrial technology products. Together, these markets continue to grow significantly. The outlook for the future metals and minerals SunMirror is aiming to market remains very attractive; Meanwhile, iron-ore prices are trading at record-highs, and gold is climbing again.'
