Lithium Junior Miner News For The Month Of October 2020

This post was originally published on this site

Welcome to the October 2020 edition of the “junior” lithium miner news. I have categorized those lithium miners that won’t likely be in production before 2022 as the juniors. Investors are reminded that most of the lithium juniors will most likely be needed in the mid and late 2020’s to supply the booming electric vehicle [EV] and energy storage markets. This means investing in these companies requires a higher risk tolerance, and a longer time frame.

October saw lithium prices flat and numerous forecasts of surging lithium demand this decade. After Tesla (TSLA) Battery Day my view is many of these forecasts will need to be revised higher again. We also saw a White House Executive Order on critical minerals, includes lithium.

Lithium spot and contract price news

During October, 99.5% lithium carbonate China spot prices were up 0.92%. Lithium hydroxide prices were down 0.34. Spodumene (6% min) prices were unchanged.

Fastmarkets (formerly Metal Bulletin) reports 99.5% lithium carbonate battery grade spot midpoint prices cif China, Japan & Korea of US$6.75/kg (US$6,750/t), and min 56.5% lithium hydroxide battery grade spot midpoint prices cif China, Japan & Korea of US$9.00/kg (US$9,000/t).

Benchmark Mineral Intelligence has September global weighted average prices at US$6,086/t for Li carbonate, US$8,795/t for Li hydroxide, and US$375/t for spodumene (6%).

Junior lithium miners company news

Rio Tinto [ASX:RIO] [LN:RIO] (RIO)

On October 5 Mining See reported:

Protests against Rio Tinto’s future lithium mine in Serbia……The citizens of Loznica demanded an urgent suspension of all activities related to the construction of the jadarite/lithium mine and the abandonment of the lithium exploitation project near their city…..The most important request of the protest organizers is the holding of a referendum of the citizens on whether they are for or against the mine.
