In this episode we chat to David Archer CEO of Savannah Resources, a multi-commodity development company focussed on building cash-generative and profitable mining operations, and who have assets in Portugal and Mozambique, as well as a potential asset in Omen. 

David has over 30 years of industry experience with specific expertise in the development and operation of copper/gold projects, and has held a number of executive and non-executive roles in a number of listed companies. He has also been actively involved in the international resources industry throughout his career.

We talk about Savannah’s Mina do Barroso Lithium mine development which is one of Europe’s leading lithium developments, and the importance of lithium and other raw materials used in EV batteries that are sourced directly from Europe.


  • Coronavirus and the lockdown have not really affected Savannah’s operations in any detrimental way, as their way of working already heavily leans towards remote management.
  • There stands to be a much more comprehensive rollout of electric vehicles in the next twelve months; a development at which Savannah will be at the forefront.
  • National governments are looking for valuable developments that can aid the speedy recovery of economies following the coronavirus outbreak.
  • The local benefits of development are as important as the national benefits. Funding initiatives will help local communities and drive prosperity.
