  • European reflections of the lithium triangle

    IOM3
    The intersection of Chile, Bolivia and Argentina forms an area referred to frequently as the lithium triangle. Known for high quality salt flats, including Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni, Chile’s Salar de Atacama, and Argentina’s Salar de Arizaro. This region produces more than 60% of the world’s lithium and it is estimated that 75% of the known lithium, resources are contained in the triangle. Dr Chris Broadbent reports .
