Global Energy Metals said Qian will be holding meetings with various Chinese and worldwide groups seeking cooperation and business opportunities in the battery-minerals sector.
It added that an emphasis will be made to highlight Global Energy Metals as a future source of cobalt, nickel and copper, given the company’s strong portfolio of growth projects in Australia, Canada and the US. Qian will also make himself available for one-on-one meetings throughout the event.
The mining conference, which is the 21st event hosted by China Mining Association, will be held on October 9-11.
As Global Energy Metals' representative for China, New Tigers Consulting is responsible for marketing commercial mineral opportunities, establishing joint programs contracts, and has been instrumental in helping the company foster strong relationships with battery cathode manufacturers in the country.
Qian and his team established the company’s strategic partnership with Beijing Easpring Technology Material Co Ltd, opening up an opportunity for one of the world's largest battery cathode manufacturers to co-invest, co-develop and jointly commercialize cobalt projects with the group.
Vancouver-based Global Energy Metals is developing cobalt assets for the growing rechargeable battery and electric vehicle market.
