Critical Resources Limited (ASX: CRR) has both critical metals - Lithium and Zinc

Coffee with Samso Episode 119 with Alex Biggs, CEO of Critical Resources Ltd (ASX: CRR). The value that shareholders get exposed to from Critical Resources Limited is that the company has both critical metals - Lithium and Zinc.

As our world move toward Zero Emission, the need for taking positions in these metals become essential. In this episode of Coffee with Samso Alex Biggs gives us a rundown on the new Mavis Lake Lithium project and the Halls Peak Base Metal project.

When I first looked at Critical Resources Limited, I was interested in the Halls Peak project as there is some good indication of zinc mineralisation. I like the fact that there is a lot of good historical indication of a zone of mineralisation.

The addition of a high-grade lithium project to the portfolio is a smart move. I hear that there is a surge of lithium plants to a point that there are insufficient resources to build these plants. Engineering firms tell me that it is almost impossible to build at the required speed.

If the demand for lithium follows the market narrative, the acquisition of a lithium project in Canada is perfect.
