The Lithium Tech That Could Send The EV Boom Into Overdrive

Commodities / Investing 2021 Dec 06, 2021 - 03:02 PM GMT

By: OilPrice_Com

Commodities

The electric revolution is the biggest change the auto industry has seen since Ford invented the assembly line in 1913.

But an impending supply shortage has put one critical resource in the global spotlight.

With the meteoric rise of Tesla, nearly every major automaker has shifted its sights towards producing the next great electric vehicle.

Ford made headlines this year with its announcement of the all-electric F-150 Lightning, which now has upwards of 200,000 pre-orders.


That electric enthusiasm has spread to nearly every other major automaker - including GM, Fiat Chrysler, Mitsubishi, Honda, Volvo, and BMW to name just a few.

This massive shift has driven demand for one crucial element sky-high.

That’s why Reuters recently reported, “Lithium producers grow bullish as the EV revolution turbocharges demand.”

The Wall Street Journal proclaimed, “Lithium booms in the battle for electric-vehicle batteries.”

But Barron’s warned, “The EV revolution needs more lithium.”

That’s just one of the reasons top-performing lithium companies have been on such a tear this year, with several stocks more than doubling since the start of the year.

Neo Lithium Corp. has taken off for 198% gains during that time.

American Lithium Corp. jumped for 326% gains.

And Vision Lithium is up an exceptional 577% for the year.

But the biggest winner in the lithium bull market could be one who doesn’t just make the next major mining discovery, but fundamentally transforms how lithium is mined around the world.

That’s why we have been following updates from Medaro Mining Corp. (CSE:MEDA; OTC:MEDAF) so closely.

Medaro is sitting on two promising projects in one of Canada’s top lithium-producing regions.

But it’s their new, proprietary technology that we believe could potentially play a role in changing the economics of lithium mining for exploration companies all across the globe.

Here are 3 reasons we plan to pay close attention to Medaro Mining in the months ahead:

If Developed and Commercialized, This New Technology Could Change Lithium Mining Forever

Medaro Mining (CSE:MEDA; OTC:MEDAF) and their joint-venture partner hold the intellectual property rights for the development of a unique, new Hard Rock Lithium Technology (HLT).

This novel approach to extracting lithium could help create a paradigm shift in the industry if proven successful in their upcoming drill projects.

But to fully grasp the gravity of the situation, it’s important to first understand a little about how lithium is processed today.

The precious mineral is primarily mined in one of two surfaces: brine or hard rock.

But the vast majority of lithium produced today comes from brine because it’s so much cheaper to process.

Hard rock mining is far more costly because miners need to separate the rock by crushing, grinding, separating, and performing flotation processes on the ore.

Not only can this be a long and intensive process, but there are also more costs tacked on top of that because it’s usually done by shipping the ore to a processing plant off-site for extraction.

In other words, there’s a large supply of lithium hidden inside hard rock surfaces around the world, and as it stands, it’s just too expensive for lithium miners to process it.

But Medaro’s unique new technology could help level the playing field by cutting hard rock processing costs by up to half while recovering nearly 100% of that lithium.

Here’s how it works.

The technology uses a natural solvent that’s recycled and reused in the system, lowering costs on replacing new solvents.

Next, it extracts lithium and other valuable byproducts like aluminum oxide and silica, which can also be sold to further offset production costs.

Finally, it converts the lithium to high-quality lithium carbonate, lithium hydroxide, or lithium metal.

The company reports this  process is unlike anything on the markets today.

Not only is it cheaper and more effective, but it’s also environmentally friendly in a world where trillions of dollars are pouring into ESG funds.

Medaro Mining (CSE:MEDA; OTC:MEDAF) could begin testing the technology by mid to late 2022 through the construction of a pilot plant, with the coming months being pivotal in that process.

From there, they could possibly license that technology out to exploration companies across the globe, delivering new long-term revenue opportunities.

Successful implementation of such a technology could unlock a huge portion of the world’s lithium supply that’s been left unprocessed until now.

And that could be exactly what we need to keep the major companies like Tesla, Ford, and GM plowing ahead in the EV boom.

Exciting New Project in Canada’s Lithium Heartland

Medaro’s story goes beyond just their potentially transformational technology though.

The team just finished Phase 1 of exploration in their new Cyr South lithium project in the prolific James Bay mining region of Quebec.

The Cyr South project is made up of 52 claims across 2,700 hectares in the heart of Canada’s lithium pegmatite region.

And the keen observer would see it’s located just 3 km south of the James Bay lithium project being explored by Galaxy Resources. That’s a property containing a published indicated resource of over 40 million tons of lithium.

Work by previous operators at Cyr South has found the presence of several pegmatites on the property and surface samples have shown lithium, niobium, and tantalum.

So if Galaxy’s discovery up the road is any indication, along with some additional work on their own property, Medaro could be sitting on a prospective lithium property.

The team has completed preliminary work including soil and rock sampling and mapping.

Now, they’re just waiting on results from Phase 1 within the next month or two before finalizing their upcoming drilling plans.

With easy access to a major highway running through the property and a multi-service truck stop located nearby, this is an efficient setup for what looks like it could be a significant drill program.

Plus, add to that the potential to cut processing costs by another 30-50% using their technology, and we think this could be the beginning of a great opportunity to display their unique tech to the world.

But that’s not all Medaro Mining (CSE:MEDA; OTC:MEDAF) is holding in their back pocket. They’ve diversified even further with another key resource.

Tapping Into Another Global Shortage

While Big Tech has turned lithium shortages into a global headline, there’s another green energy resource that’s seeing renewed interest with the massive ESG push.

Today, nuclear power is playing a bigger and bigger role worldwide.

For example, China just announced plans to build 150 new nuclear reactors over the next 14 years.

That’s more nuclear reactors than we've built worldwide over the last 35 years.

And those reactors, both in China and in nuclear plants across the globe, will need uranium to power them.

With uranium already being in short supply as it stands, the increased demand could soon create a huge supply squeeze for uranium as well.

This is why Medaro Mining (CSE:MEDA; OTC:MEDAF) has diversified its holdings to include an option to acquire a new property near the only major uranium basin in all of North America, Canada’s Athabasca Basin.

The Athabasca has a long history of mining and development, and it’s well-known for being the highest grade uranium depository in the world.

Medaro’s Yurchison project covers 55,000 hectares of land, located just southwest and on-trend from the Janice Lake property under option to Rio Tinto for $30 million.

Medaro’s new project already had historical drilling done years ago, showing up to 0.3% uranium.

And as they continue to move ahead with the Yurchison project, we think this alone could lead to potentially significant profits if exploration goes according to plan and the results support commercial development.

Get Ready for the Lithium Boom

With some of the biggest companies in the world - Tesla, Ford, GM, Volkswagen, and more - shifting to electric vehicles, the pressure is on the mining industry to find an answer for the lithium shortage.

And if all goes well in the coming months, Medaro’s technology could play a significant role in helping supply lithium for the EV boom.

At this point, Medaro Mining (CSE:MEDA; OTC:MEDAF) may still be a relatively unknown company.

But with the potential to license their proprietary technology out to other lithium companies across the globe, the upcoming months could prove to be very important for both Medaro and the tech industry.
