Shaw and Partners state manager Davide Bosio recaps this year’s annual Diggers and Dealers conference in Kalgoorlie, WA. Record crowds flocked to the major mining conference to hear large and small caps across the resources sector tell their stories. Bosio says battery metals, rare earths and lithium were strong themes as the world embraces green energy and works to curb emissions. Regarding gold stocks, the Shaw and Partners rep says sentiment has waned, but the lower prices represent an opportunity. Following a few tough months, Bosio says that commentators and investors are looking forward with a better understanding of interest rate hikes and the pullback.
