Bolivia to Begin Lithium Production This Month
Bolivia plans to start production of lithium carbonate and potassium chloride for export this month at its pilot plant, Mining Minister Jose Pimentel said.
Government workers will start pumping lithium-bearing liquid, known as brine, into pools at the plant in western Bolivia this month, the minister said. It will take three to four months to separate the metal from the brine, he said.
“We think that in January or February we will have product,” Pimentel said yesterday in an interview in La Paz.
