Lithium Prospecting Upsets Quebec Residents
OTTAWA -- The rush to find lithium in West Quebec has some residents concerned that prospectors will cut trees and tunnel or drill on their land to meet the demand for the volatile metal used in rechargeable electric car batteries.
Stelmine Canada Ltd., a Montreal-area mineral exploration company has staked claims on 13,000 acres of private land just across the border from Ottawa.
The company is also searching for 14 rare earth elements used in military and high-technology applications because the minerals are sometimes found together.
