The Numbers Don't Lie: Why the Industrial Minerals Sector Is Here to Stay (1/28/14) There are two ways to visualize the critical metals and industrial minerals sector. Some see a hostile climate, where junior mining companies compete for scarce financing dollars. But there's a sunnier side to this story: more than ever, companies, government and academia are forming partnerships to solve a global problemŚthe ongoing need for scarce critical materials. In this Mining Report interview, Luisa Moreno, industrial minerals analyst with Euro Pacific Capital, discusses the challenges and the prospects for players in a sector she insists is here to stay.

Two Ways to Capitalize on Accelerating Lithium Demand: Luisa Moreno (8/22/13) The sleekest, most efficient electronic product is nothing without the battery that powers it. Enter lithium, the raw material battery manufacturers depend on. With electric/hybrid vehicle use on the rise and demand for consumer electronics steadily climbing, lithium producers with quality product should have no shortage of potential buyers. In this interview with The Energy Report, Luisa Moreno, mining and metals analyst with Euro Pacific Canada, names her top lithium picks with both the goods and the customers.

Luisa Moreno: Brace Yourself for Three More Years of Heavy Rare Earth Shortages (4/30/13) Rare earth elements are a crucial component of our everyday lives, but many of the companies unearthing them are still learning to navigate the supply chain. Those that can master the dance of metallurgy and end-user relationships will find success, says Luisa Moreno, a senior research analyst with Euro Pacific in Toronto. In this interview with The Metals Report, Moreno updates us on which miners are making the most progress.
