The top Deloitte WA Index Movers and Shakers in November were:

The binding agreement is for the supply of spodumene concentrate to Tesla from Piedmonts’ North Carolina deposit. The terms of the agreement are for an initial five-year term on a fixed-price commitment, equating to approximately one-third of Piedmonts planned spodumene concentrate production of 160,000 tonnes per annum.
  • The market capitalisation of Pointerra Limited climbed 81 percent over the month of September. This growth was a result of the company’s announcement which updated its annual contract value, noting growth in existing customers and the addition of new customers in the US energy utilities sector underpinning significant turnover potential.
