Global Lithium demand continues to Dazzle

LITHIUM! The new oil?

One of the biggest commodity stories of 2021 is the enormous demand for lithium to supply batteries for electric vehicles. Electric vehicle production has grown at a staggering pace for anyone aware that not that long ago all the electric cars made were taken out into the desert and destroyed! Now I wonder who was behind those shenanigans?

At any rate we have a new consciousness which declares that electric vehicles are going to save the planet from overheating and we need them to replace ICE vehicles as soon as yesterday.
For this to occur we need batteries and lots of them! Those batteries take lithium to construct, hence the lithium price has soared to all time highs of approximately $30,000.00/ton U.S. as companies and countries move aggressively to obtain reliable supplies.

Further, according to data from the website MarketsandMarkets.com, (Article Link)the demand by 2025 will increase by more than double:

The lithium compounds market is projected to grow from USD 5.3 billion in 2020 to USD 13.5 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 20.6% from 2020 to 2025.

A junior exploration company which we own shares in largely because of faith in management is Infinite Ore Corp. (ILI.V OTCQB-ARXRF)
Jackpot Lithium deposit is the name of their established lithium deposit near Thunder Bay Ontario which is high grade although is rather small at present and needs to be expanded by more exploration. Jackpot is approximately 2 million tones of over 1% lithium which is considered high grade.

ILI has very recently closed a financing for approximately $8 million (cad) to expand their lithium holdings although it is unclear at this point where they will focus their spending.
We await further guidance from management, and the prospect has not gone unnoticed as the company valuation has basically doubled recently on the news of financing. The financing was done around 100% below where the share price was trading so that tells you something positive is happening in the sector and the company as well/
Stay tuned for updates and “GO Lithium!”
