I tempi stanno mutando ad incredibile velocità.

Gli Stati Uniti sono grandi importatori di litio, i cui prezzi sono aumentati sul mercato internazionale.

Materie Prime. Ancora aumenti dei prezzi. Litio +91.40%, per esempio. Inflazione.

Cina. Sta investendo massicciamente in Bolivia e Columbia. La guerra del Litio.

Alla fine, la ragionevolezza sembrerebbe prevalere.

Sembrerebbe essersi avviato al termine l’usbergo che le ngo esercitavano, forti dell’appoggio politico dei liberal democratici.

U.S. judge rules Lithium Americas may excavate Nevada mine site

A US federal judge has ruled that Lithium America Corp (LAC.TO) can carry out excavation work at its Thacker Pass lithium mine site in Nevada, rejecting a request from environmentalists that said excavations can cause damage to sage grouse and others the wildlife.

The ruling marked a rare victory for a US critical mineral project as environmental groups increasingly pressure courts and regulators to block mining projects even though they produce metal keys to building electric vehicles .

Chief Justice Miranda Du of the federal court in Reno, Nevada, said late Friday that excavations — necessary to determine whether the land holds historical imports for Native Americans — could go ahead while she was under the administration of former President Donald Trump. sets out the broader question. When it approved the project in January. Du said she would try to publish her decision by early 2022.

Vancouver, Canada-based Lithium America had agreed not to excavate before July 29, while Doo held discussions. It was not immediately clear whether the company now intends to begin digging on that date. Company representatives could not be reached for comment.

A project of about 18,000 acres in size would affect less than a quarter of an acre, a factor Dou said influenced his decision.

Additionally, Do said, environmental groups could not prove what specific damage the excavation would cause, only hypothetical estimates. “Environmentalists failed to meet their burden to show that they would cause irreparable harm,” Du said.

“We are disappointed by the court’s decision that allowed the company to excavate and remove cultural and historical artifacts,” said Kelly Fuller of the Western Watershed Project, one of the environmental groups that sued to block the project. Is.”

Fuller said the group looks forward to hearings with Doo in the future to argue that the entire project should be cancelled.
