We see significant interest from Japan in PGM and battery metals assets, as Japan moves towards net zero-emission goals and the hydrogen economy. With JOGMEC and Hanwa having already acquired PGM assets in South Africa, the Japanese players are interested to further expand their presence in lower cost and energy abundant mining jurisdictions.
