Joe and Emily are joined by Ken Brinsden, CEO of Pilbara Minerals. They reminisce with the “man from a land down under” about their trip to the Pilbara mine in early 2018, and how quickly the project was built and started producing. The two then learn about Ken’s connection to a US president! There is a discussion of the nitty gritty of offtake agreements, and the push in Australia to stop producing minerals and start producing chemicals. Stay tuned till the end of the podcast and hear some rapid fire questions that include Ken’s “chalk and cheese” moments, and learn a few things about the tremors underground mining can cause.
