Chinese scientists say supersized magnesium parts pave the way for cheaper, lighter cars
- Researchers in China produce giant car parts using technology similar to Tesla’s ‘gigacasting’ – a process that has cut production times and costs
- Magnesium alloys could absorb impacts and offer advantages over more common aluminium-based materials, professor says

Inomin Mines offers investors exposure to major critical minerals and precious metals discoveries
Inomin Mines Inc. [MINE-TSXV] is a company that offers investors a window on significant critical minerals, including magnesium-nickel-chromium-cobalt, and precious metals discoveries on well-located properties in British Columbia and Mexico. The company’s flagship Beaver-Lynx project is situated in south-central B.C., 50 kilometres north of Williams Lake and 15 kilometres east of the Gibraltar mine, the second largest open-pit copper mine in Canada. The property is accessible by paved roads, benefits from proximity to nearby hydro-electric power, and may offer a carbon capture opportunity. Previous drilling suggests that Inomin could delineate large magnesium and nickel resources at Beaver and the nearby Lynx area, making the project a potential district-scale source of critical minerals for the battery sector.

Magnesium – a promising candidate for rechargeable batteries
Researchers report that magnesium batteries could surpass lithium-ion batteries thanks to the former’s higher energy density. In addition to the potential to realize higher battery capacities, magnesium is considered a promising candidate for rechargeable batteries because the metal is safer for battery chemistries than lithium and is more abundant.

Bullish outlook for base metals
There's no way enough mines can be built on time to meet net zero energy
transition targets on the timelines policymakers have promised, but
industrial metal miners - especially lithium and nickel miners - could get
very rich trying.

Scientists Discover World's Toughest Metal Alloy
Researchers have proven that a metallic alloy of chromium, cobalt, and
nickel is the toughest material ever tested.
Its properties get even more resistant to damage at extremely low
temperatures which could make it useful in the construction of aircraft and
Battery-grade nickel demand to grow as world sets sights on low-carbon future
The global green transition and electrification of transport has started a paradigm shift in the demand dynamics of metals, which are required for a low-carbon future, and are set to experience a significant boost in demand in the coming decade at least, says research agency Fitch Solutions.

High rerating potential on market recognition of company's attractive assets and exploration success
"Success is never guaranteed, but you can improve your odds by considering companies with good assets and an experienced management team. Inomin Mines has both and they have the fundamentals in place including a relatively low share count to create significant shareholder value."
The Importance of Class One Nickel for the EV Markets
Q&A with Ken Hoffman, Co-head of EV Battery Materials Research, McKinsey and Co. January 12, 2021
“There are two main features that consumers want in an electric vehicle, which is generally to match what they have today in a petrol car. They want range and they want recharge time. In range they want between 650 to 900 kilometers. And for recharge time they want about five or six minutes, which is how long it takes to refill your car. For this type of range, batteries need to have nickel.”
Accelerated carbonation of mining waste may be used to recover cobalt, nickel.
“If you can integrate carbon capture with the recovery of previously inaccessible minerals, say of nickel and cobalt, you could make some lower grade mines more viable,” said Jessica Hamilton, lead author of the study and a researcher at the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation and Monash University in a media statement.

“I was very impressed by the intersections from the drilling program, which appeared to have defined a near-surface gold and silver mineralized body,” John Gomez
Mining.com - Inomin expands Beaver-Lynx nickel project
- Inomin Mines (TSX.V: MINE) announced that it has expanded its Beaver-Lynx nickel project by 6,040 hectares through staking and the buyout of eight properties held by third-parties.
- In a press release, Inomin explained that the Beaver nickel-cobalt property has increased to 7,528 hectares from 4,250 hectares, while the Lynx property is now 12,662 hectares, up from 9,900 hectares.
According to the Vancouver-based miner, the new ground within both properties covers nickel occurrences and prominent gravity anomalies that may be related to local mineralization.
