I'd love to hear your feedback

As I mentioned last week, I’m taking this week and next week off.

This newsletter has been going weekly for over four months, and some of you have sent me some great feedback. I want to make sure I can understand what readers are thinking, because this topic is not covered by many journalists, and it will only grow more important as we ramp up clean energy tech.

It would make my week to get some good constructive feedback from the Green Rocks community. Below is a link to a 5-minute, anonymous survey with some brief questions on the newsletter.

Thanks! And have a great weekend!


If you’re new here or need a refresher, below is a list with the editions.

Every week, I highlight one area in mining for clean energy. That could be a mining project, but it could also be science or markets. I also run through the week’s mining stories, which include local resistance, solutions, investigations, and problems.
