Don Hains, P. Geo. | Hains Engineering Company Limited/Hains Technology Associates

Talk Abstract:

Lithium is essential to the EV revolution, development of energy storage systems to support wind and solar power projects, consumer electronics and portable power tools. Demand for lithium in batteries is projected to increase 5-fold by 2035 from today’s approximate 600,000 tonnes Lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE). Where will all this lithium come from? What are the differences in geology and processing from different sources? How does Canada fit in the supply picture? This presentation will discuss key aspects of the lithium revolution from exploration to end use.
