At Cathodes 2017, the Investing News Network spoke with Ken Brinsden, CEO of Pilbara Minerals, about the company’s recent lithium offtake deal.

The Investing News Network caught up with Ken Brinsden, CEO of Pilbara Minerals (ASX:PLS), at this year’s Cathodes conference to get more insight on the company’s recent offtake deal with Great Wall and to learn his thoughts on the future of the lithium market.
Great Wall is one of China’s largest vehicle manufacturers, and last month Pilbara signed a deal with the company that will allow it to further develop its flagship Pilgangoora lithium-tantalum project.
“This deal is a significant milestone that sends a couple of messages: firstly, the car industry, and in particular in China, is interested in security in the supply chain, and secondly, nobody would have imagined that a car manufacturer would become a battery manufacturer — and one of significant scale,” Brinsden said.
