Topics include:

Current lithium “state of play”

Why do some contemplating EU conversion projects feel carbonate, rather than spodumene, is the best route to battery quality hydroxide?

Why the lithium industry continues to be so misunderstood

Barriers to investment

Is Elon Musk “worth his salt” with respect to lithium?

The future of the cost curve

Why I will never catch up with my daughter’s presence on social media

What is my favorite “type” of lithium?

Why the next lithium shortage will last for years?

The problem with feasibility studies

Why partners matter

Urban Mining

Ganfeng’s strategy

Shout outs to Jon Evans, Dr. Tom Benson and Chris Reed
