M2i Global Inc., a company specialising in the development and execution of a complete global value supply chain for critical minerals for the US government and US free trade partners, has announced a strategic partnership with Nova Terra, a research organisation at the forefront of innovation in critical mineral processing technologies.

As the global demand for critical minerals continues to surge, driven by their indispensable role in various industries including technology, renewable energy, and defence, M2i recognises the urgency in securing a sustainable supply chain. In pursuit of this goal, M2i has joined forces with Nova Terra, leveraging their complementary strengths and expertise to pioneer ground-breaking solutions.

This collaboration marks a significant milestone in the journey towards enhancing critical mineral supply. By combining M2i’s extensive experience in battery metals, corporate finance, logistics and policy with Nova Terra’s cutting-edge research in water treatment, copper processing, mine waste valorisation, and critical mineral technologies, the partnership aims to revolutionise the extraction, processing, and utilisation of critical minerals.

“We are thrilled to embark on this transformative journey with Nova Terra,” said Lieutenant General (Ret) Jeffrey W. Talley, President and Chief Executive Officer of M2i. “Together, we have the opportunity to redefine the landscape of critical mineral production, driving innovation, sustainability, and economic growth.”

The partnership is already working towards securing copper and graphite supply chains, as well as developing regional transition models to secure jobs for mining areas as they transition into critical mineral activities. A flagship programme of the partnership is securing water supply for arid regional towns reliant on mining, minimising environmental impacts while maximising efficiency of operations and livability of communities.

“M2i are ideal partners to progress the essential journey into secure critical mineral supply chains,” added Dr. Tom Payten, Managing Director at Nova Terra. “This exciting opportunity will allow us to work collaboratively to bring about swift innovation in the US and Australia.”

Through collaborative research, development, and deployment initiatives, M2i and Nova Terra are committed to advancing the global critical mineral industry, fostering economic resilience, and promoting sustainable practices.
