In a challenging world, the UK’s new critical minerals strategy intends to improve the resilience of critical minerals supply chains. It aims to ensure that, in the decades to come, the minerals we will need to power our world in the future, can be made available in the quantities needed, extracted in responsible ways and supported by well-functioning and transparent markets. And, in doing that, we want to position the UK at the forefront of the green industrial revolution, create opportunities for UK businesses, and take opportunities to level up, innovate and tread more lightly on the earth – all whilst showing international leadership.

Aberdeen Minerals Limited, a member of the Critical Minerals Association, is delighted to see that Scotland's exploration potential has been highlighted in this strategy.
