First launched in 2018, 121 Mining Investment has once again successfully completed its in-person Singapore event, this year at the luscious Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre. The event took place on the 19th and 20th of September, following the tail end of the Singapore Grand Prix just a few days before, with multiple panels, meetings, and industry expert interviews to keep the excitement going in the Lion City.

121’s portfolio currently encompasses global events in London, New York, Cape Town, Las Vegas, Frankfurt, Sydney, Singapore, Melbourne, Hong Kong, and potentially Shanghai or Dubai in the future.

“We were very happy to have made the trip over for the 121 Conference in Singapore,” said Matthew Horgan, Peak Rare Earths head of corporate development and investor relations. “Over the course of the two days, we were able to make a number of meaningful connections with investors from across the APAC region.”

Peak Rare Earths is one of mining companies that comes to 121 events looking for its unique and private, pre-scheduled meetings format. Peak (ASX: PEK) is an Australian exploration company focused on delivering high-grade rare earths through its Ngualla project in order to enable low carbon technologies for the green energy transformation. The company says its project is one of the largest and highest-grade neodymium and praseodymium deposits in the world.

This is just scratching the surface of the types of quality projects and companies that investors can choose to support. The 30-minute meetings between investors and mining companies ran alongside a panels and presentations heavily geared towards energy transition themes, especially bridging the gap for those looking to get better acquainted with those in the industry from the APAC region.

“Surefire Resources managing director and chairman found the event (to be) a great introduction for the company to Asian investors,” commented Paul Burton, executive managing director of Surefire Resources.

Surefire Resources (ASX: ARN) is a mineral exploration company based in Perth, Western Australia and holds mineral exploration licences over vanadium, magnetite, and gold projects in the area. Its Victory Bore vanadium and battery minerals project highlights the event theme and its focus on the transition that many countries are trying to reach net-zero.

With panels centred on the future of the industry, supply and demand, energy security, value chains, lithium and the recycling market; 121 covered a wide breadth of topics geared toward the changing tides of renewable energy and electric vehicles. The event provides a balanced approach to information and value when it comes to both experts and commodity forecasts along with encouraging fruitful relationships.

“The opportunity to spend one-on-one time with investors at the conference was invaluable, allowing a much greater level of interaction then is commonly afforded in more traditional conference setting,” commented Julian Woodcock managing director and CEO of Viking Mines.

Viking Mines (ASX: VKA) is an Australian company focused on its Canegrass battery materials project located in Western Australia, 620km northeast of Perth.

“This type of conference is unique and gives investors and companies a greater opportunity to work through the investment case and build contacts and relationships for further engagement.”

Its sentiments like this that has 121 excited to facilitate and support more connections in the future for events both in Singapore and across the globe.
