Australian-listed Independence Group is well-placed to benefit from rising demand for nickel, cobalt and copper as sales of electric vehicles rise. The company’s Nova mine produces all three metals, and Independence MD Peter Bradford says it has received a number of enquiries regarding supply deals when existing off-take arrangements with BHP Billiton and Glencore expire. Bradford notes that factors other than demand from the electric vehicle industry have prompted the recent rise in the price of nickel and copper.
