A couple of years ago, an area I’d been prospecting gold for and found none, around an old test tunnel that I think was dig for manganese was later claimed for lithium.  Still no mining activity there, but perhaps it’s a legit claim.

Things other than gold are out there.  Nearly all out there are just impossible to develop by a small miner, so most of us do not know what to look for.

You should get yourself a good battery operated SW fluorescent mineral lamp and prospect for specimens. Arizona is a great state to look for them. There's roughly 10,000 collectors in the USA so that's not a small market and some of those specimens can go for $200 to $300 and up. Everyone searches for gold but I would bet you've walked over fluorescent "gold" without even knowing it.

A good article on Lithium. If we had processing capabilities here in the U.S. It would be the new gold rush.

Aloha Snackbar, Bob

We have processing capabilities,  just not on the scale of the main player. 

I didn't realize that they are extracting Li directly from the hydrothermal  brine at the Salton Sea. No evap ponds required, just some sort of proprietary  ion exchange tech.

 

I wonder if Tesla's new million  mile battery can be quick charged like Toyota's new, solid-state Li battery can be- reputedly  in 10 minutes.
