Renierite contains germanium, a semiconductor that is used in transistors.

The future of cell phones, solar panels and electric vehicles depends on materials like cobalt, germanium and rare earth elements. Those and other critical minerals are the focus of the second annual virtual workshop hosted by Missouri S&T Aug. 4-5.

The workshop features U.S. and international experts on subjects including mineral deposits, critical mineral sustainability, public policy, and processing and recycling. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and further discuss topics with the speakers.

Registration opens July 1. The workshop is free and open to anyone who is interested in critical minerals. For more information or to register, visit
