Tesla's Lithium Supply - Update

Another Randy Carlson article.
Summary
  • Recent political activity in Nevada's Legislature suggests the State is about to double down on electric cars, batteries and lithium mining.
  • Pure Energy Minerals proposes a solvent extraction process to win high purity lithium compounds from Nevada's Silver Peak brine deposits. Other Nevada miners look to supply lithium also.
  • Strongly conservative Nevada Assemblyman and liberal State Senator are urging new tax incentives aimed at bringing lithium refining to Tesla's backyard.
