The event was titled 'Introducing the Province of Manitoba's Critical Minerals Initiatives'.

In attendance were industry representatives from both sides of the border as well as key automakers and battery manufacturers.
The purpose of the conference was to promote Manitoba's ability to play a pivotal role in the North American EV industry. Snow Lake's CEO Philip Gross discussed the pressure that electrification puts on the industry supply chain, as well as the need for locally sourced, clean lithium. Snow Lake Lithium was the only lithium company in North America to present.
Mr. Gross stated, 'Creating an OPEC style dependence with China on the commodity upon which our future hinges, would be detrimental to the longevity of the North American auto industry. Snow Lake Lithium offers a fully renewable source of battery raw materials which will become even more important as manufactures are increasingly judged by their carbon footprint. The industry cannot maintain Its growth trajectory in the electrification process without establishing self-sufficiency and control of its supply chain.'
