The rising demand for electric battery metals

The global adoption of electric vehicles is expected to reach over 70% by 2040, putting the supplies of precious metals like cobalt and lithium at the forefront of growth opportunities in the mining industry.

Supplying the green transportation revolution

Gold Lion Resources is actively working on the identification and extraction of key battery metals from deposits to help supply the massive influx of batteries required as the world of transportation progresses towards total electrification.

Exploration to drive the renewable energy revolution

Satellite imagery linked to artificial intelligence (AI) have proven to be important tools in support of mineral exploration projects.  AI allows the interpretation of wavelengths that cannot be seen by the human eye; therefore, near-infrared, short wave infrared, and thermal infrared can be used to identify the difference in structural features of the earth's surface.

Furthermore,  multispectral imaging and thematic mapping allow researchers to collect reflection data and absorption properties of soils, rock, and vegetation. This data is leveraged to interpret surface lithologies, identify clays, oxides, and soil types from satellite imagery.
