Sibanye-Stillwater Weighs Buying Copper, Other Metals Amid Clean Energy Trend

The South African miner Sibanye-Stillwater looks to take advantage of surging demand from auto makers

The chief executive of Sibanye-Stillwater said the South African miner wants to expand beyond precious metals, through acquisitions, into copper, cobalt and other metals used in electric vehicles, making the company the second big miner to plot such a move.

The miner also aims in the year’s second half to make a decision on moving its primary listing from South Africa to an exchange in New York, London or Toronto, CEO Neal Froneman told The Wall Street Journal.
