Lithium Potential in the UK
November 11, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The increase in the production of electric vehicles has caused the demand for lithium to soar. The Li supply, dominated by a handful of producing counties, is struggling to keep up. To mitigate supply risks for local manufacturers to and lower the global environmental impact of Li production numerous countries have started to investigate the potential for domestic supply. Exploration efforts in the UK are currently mainly focused on the Cornubian Batholith in Cornwall and Devon, but what about other areas?
Dr. Robin Armstrong, Mining Sector Leader at the Natural History Museum, will assess the Li Potential of the UK. Using his skills including mineralogy, geochemistry, field mapping and sampling, and geographical information systems, Robin primarily studies volcanic arc related styles of mineralization such as porphyry copper deposits and epithermal gold deposits. However, in recent years he has expanded his interests to include natural resources for the green economy and has worked on a range of Li deposits.
Dr. Armstrong will be presenting virtually. You can attend this session with others in MinSouth at The Counting House at 50 Cornhill by registering at this LINK. There is limited space in the room where the lecture will be held. You can also attend virtually. To find out the details to register virtually, register at this LINK.
