Lithium Prospect Weinebene, Carinthia

The comment was made that it is easier and more economical to separate Lithium from Brines. The problem is that those brines are starting to be depleted and the cost of extraction is rising. Two deposits in North Carolina, USA still have extensive reserves of spodumene and may see mining within the decade if the world economy doesn't completely tank.

hmmm... the eifel volcanoes that have yielded soooo much micro- and macrominerals because of mining ... and now serve as geotopes for geotourism as the quarries have opened windows to earths history ....
back to serious:
1st there is no more metal mining in GER, if there was ..... are you sure they would endorse it Uwe?
2nd you´re right about this particular poster - it is Eifel specific but so is NOT the attitude of the greens in Rhineland-Palatinate against ANY mining/quarries. I can tell from an insider perspective.
3rd - look at all new "Berggeschrey" in the Erzgebirge and Lausitz etc .. all projects face green resistance before they even really started.
NIMBY mentality .. if you tell them they should abandon their iPhone what would you expect they will do?

Obviously there is a mentality in Germany that we can buy all our raws elsewhere and that we don´t need mining. Maybe those people will wake up soon...

cheers

I suspect that brine sourced lithium will be with us yet for some time. One of the really big resources is the great salt lake of the Salar de Uyuni. Lithium producers have been trying to work a deal with the Bolivian government for quite some time, but Alfredo Petrov tells me that because of the conditions the government set on extracting the stuff were so extreme, that the companies went elsewhere to mine the stuff.

Their problem is fear caused by ignorance. If they (and the average concerned citizen) would know more details about modern mining, they would certainly approve mining initiatives and projects (especially since the laws in Germany are very strict concerning environmental protection in such cases).

2nd you´re right about this particular poster - it is Eifel specific but so is NOT the attitude of the greens in Rhineland-Palatinate against ANY mining/quarries. I can tell from an insider perspective.

Ok.

3rd - look at all new "Berggeschrey" in the Erzgebirge and Lausitz etc .. all projects face green resistance before they even really started.

See your first point.
