Bolivia Announces Two New Lithium Deposits
LA PAZ – The Bolivian government said the country has two other lithium reservoirs in addition to the massive Uyuni Salt Flat, as well as 10 other deposits of non-metallic minerals such as potassium, magnesium, boron and ulexite.
A report released Thursday by the evaporitic resources division of the state-run Bolivian Mining Corporation, or Comibol, said the country’s second most important lithium deposit is the Coipasa Salt Flat, located in the western Andean region of Oruro near the border with Chile.
Coipasa has a roughly 3,300-square-kilometer (1,274-square-mile) surface area and, according to preliminary information from Comibol, has brine rich in lithium, magnesium, potassium and boron, as well as deposits of ulexite in some areas.
