On June 14, 2022, the US government’s state department released a press release on the formation of an international mineral security partnership (MSP). The MSP countries are Australia, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, Republic of Korea, Sweden, United Kingdom, USA and the European Commission. The partnership was announced at the world’s largest mining event, held in Toronto. The stated objective of the MSP is to ensure that critical minerals are produced, processed and recycled in a manner that supports the ability of countries to achieve the full economic development of their geological endowments.
