"Demand for lithium is projected to mushroom over 300% within eight years. Growth projections are largely based on increased consumer uses and the global proliferation of electric vehicles. However, the estimates may be vastly understated and could skyrocket much further. A recent Wall Street Journal article uncovered what may be an even greater demand driver. Multiple states and municipalities, in conjunction with utilities, are revamping their electric grids and utilizing high-density Li-ion energy storage solutions to power homes and make the grid more efficient (

"Acquired through a strategic mineral lease agreement with National Chloride Corporation of America, the Bristol Dry Lake area has long been surface-mined to produce chloride for industrial applications. Consequently, the area has exceptional mining infrastructure already in place, mitigating the primary challenges of cost effective lithium mining and production -- location, access and infrastructure. Standard Lithium's location has easy road and rail access and abundant electricity and water sources, and it is already permitted for extensive brine extraction and processing activities. Electric power and water are on the property with a major paved road on the western edge and a rail siding nearby. The mineral lease agreement with National Chloride allows Standard Lithium immediate access to conduct exploration brine sampling and extraction, evaporation and processing activities, enabling a fast-tracked project development schedule."
