What are the key ESG factors to consider when looking at nickel mining today? Read on to learn more.

Nickel prices have been on the rise in the past year, in part due to positive investor sentiment about the future of the metal in electric vehicle (EV) batteries.

The base metal is mainly used in stainless steel, which remains a key demand driver for the market. That said, as demand from the battery segment is expected to surge and as governments continue to set decarbonization goals, the nickel mining industry’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) credentials are receiving more and more attention.

Just a couple of years ago, Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk called for more nickel mining in an “efficient and in an environmentally sensitive way,” which put a focus on the challenges the industry faces in coming years to be able to supply the needs of a growing EV industry.

Rare earths often get lumped together for the sake of brevity, but the market dynamics for each element are actually quite varied.

There are 17 rare earth elements (REEs) in all — 15 lanthanides plus yttrium and scandium.

It's a fairly diverse group, with each element having different applications, pricing and available supply. However, REEs are often placed in the same basket because they do not occur separately from each other in nature. Additionally, before modern methods, rare earths were too difficult and expensive to separate.

As a recent report from Stormcrow Capital points out, “It is practically impossible to simply mine and refine one or two rare earths; either you mine and separate them all or you end up with something that sells for a very low price because the hard work remains to be done.”
