Your Voice on Lithium and Battery Metals Discussion Paper

The AusIMM South West WA Branch has undertaken a significant body of work concerning an area of ever-increasing relevance to the resources industry, professionals and our community: the opportunity for Australia to initiate and participate in the high-value battery industry sector.

You can access the SW WA Branch Discussion Paper here.

AusIMM Lithium and Battery Industry Advocacy Proposal

Recognising that the industry is moving quickly at a global level, the Lithium and Battery Metals Discussion Paper available below, emphasises the need for complementary policy settings at the federal, state and regional levels to support the development of a strong Australian battery-metals sector.

The sub-committee have leveraged their knowledge, insights and regional perspective in developing this discussion paper. Working towards a more finalied and formal AusIMM policy position, AusIMM encourages the broader resources community and membership to play a role in developing recommendations and advocating across all levels of government for the development of a strong lithium and battery metals supply-chain in Australia.

Your Voice on Lithium and Battery Metals

AusIMM invites all members to contribute to the development of a nationally scoped discussion paper on lithium and battery metals.

We invite members to review the discussion paper and consider the following questions:

  1. What should the focus areas be for AusIMM when advocating on lithium and battery metals?
  2. With a view to a nationally scoped discussion paper, what additional considerations are relevant for developing a lithium and battery metal supply chain in Australia?
  3. What further policy recommendations would you make in relation to developing a lithium and battery metal supply chain in Australia?

To play a part in AusIMM’s shared role as the Trusted Voice for people in resources, we encourage you to provide feedback on the discussion paper and responses to the above questions to us by 26 February 2021.

You may forward your feedback and responses to the Policy team via policy@ausimm.com, or by contacting us through the form on our website.
