The Lithium Mining Game

My two days with Nemaska Lithium

By Bill Moore

Open Access Article Originally Published: December 19, 2011

Eons ago, a little understood process formed pale green crystals of what geologists call spodumene. It formed in slivered tendrils among course-grained aggregations of glittering white pegmatite. According to Guy Bourassa, the president of Nemaska Lithium, headquartered in Quebec, such deposits typically formed in narrow, short “dike-like” geologic structures that occasionally become exposed when the overburden of soil erodes away, revealing the marled bone-white rock below. A sharp, trained eye might catch the green glint of spodumene that hints at the presence of a valuable mineral on which the modern world of mobile communications, computing, and now transportation is becoming evermore dependent: lithium.
Full article in the link... but:
Nemaska plans to begin developing the project this year, constructing the necessary support facilities, with mining slated to commence in 2013. Bourassa made the point during his presentation that not only does the project sit on the second richest known deposit of lithium-bearing spodumene, estimated at 386,000 tons of lithium oxide, the company itself is highly undervalued. He estimates that if you compare it with comparable lithium juniors like Canada Lithium or majors like Talison, it should be worth between $300-400 per tonne of lithium contained. Today, it’s valued at $73CAD.

Disclaimer: I don’t own any shares of Nemaska Lithium (TSX-V:NMX) … yet.

Canadian graphite producers prepare for boom

PAV JORDAN — MINING REPORTER

From Wednesday's Globe and Mail

Move over rare earths – graphite is the new darling of the mining industry.

Canadian graphite miners are angling to be high-end suppliers to the global lithium ion battery market, where companies such as LG, Samsung, Mitsubishi and Hitachi are fuelling growing demand for new technologies ranging from smartphones and laptops to electric cars.

News from Western Australia this February: Lithium mines pegged to grow sevenfold as Chinese investment propels WA boom:
http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-02-08/c ... om/8252068

Starts:
Western Australia had only one mine producing lithium last year, but an estimated $500 million of investment means Australia's economic engine room could be home to as many as seven mines by early 2018.

Last month: Australia backs lithium mine to spur battery push:
http://www.reuters.com/article/australi ... SL3N1JO1E3

Starts:
The Australian government will invest in a lithium mine for the first time, as part of a wide-ranging effort to shore up power stability in a market increasingly dependent on variable wind and solar power.

The government said on Tuesday it would invest about A$20 million ($15 million) into Pilbara Minerals Ltd's Pilgangoora project in Western Australia, which will produce lithium concentrate, a key component in electric vehicles and batteries.
