Club members were provided with an excellent overview of the Critical Minerals resources that are available in Queensland, and more specifically within  North Queensland by Scott Stewart.
We are blessed to have very large areas with what is fast becoming valuable minerals that are necessary for the variety of things that are being developed to enhance our future living needs as environmental aspects change.
Most of the minerals mentioned were not the common types we are used to, but are being sought by various countries for the provision of future power needs.
We learned that a number of projects are being undertaken to value-add these products rather than just sending them overseas in their raw state. All of which will add to future opportunities for our communities to grow.
An excellent, and non-political, presentation by Scott Stewart, a former member of our club highlighting how North Queensland is likely to grow.
