On October 19th and 20th, Adamas Intelligence hosted “North American Critical Minerals Days” – an online conference focused on the outlook for EV production and sales in North America and the implications for rare earth and battery materials supply chains.

The free two-day event featured speakers from advanced exploration companies, mining companies, processors, recyclers, and other downstream stakeholders along the North American mine-to-EV supply chain.
