The interview can be heard at http://NNW.fm/STLHF-October-2017
Standard Lithium CEO and Director Robert Mintak shares company news and insights with NNW's Stuart Smith in an interview that delves into the opportunities presented by the world's changing energy demands.
"I've been working in the lithium sector for the better part of the last decade, and the team that has joined me has been working extensively in the lithium space as well, at the cutting edge of new lithium processing technologies," Mintak says. "We've been at the forefront of applying new technologies and new processing applications to really look at unlocking resources that haven't been viewed through the right lens."
Standard Lithium has partnered with National Chloride Corporation of America at its Bristol Lake project in San Bernardino County, California. Everything about the 25,000-plus acre project fit nicely into the company's criteria, Mintak says, pointing out the area has seen almost a century of industrial mineral production from brines.
"We're able to immediately begin working on the important processing work that any lithium project has to do," he says. "Lithium projects aren't traditional mining projects, they're more chemistry projects."
Standard Lithium's team of experts is bringing an enviable amount of extremely valuable experience in the resource development and processing side of the lithium space. The company's drive to provide battery-grade lithium materials is buoyed by a belief in the transformative state of the world's energy marketplace.
"We're at the early stages of a new economy and lithium is at the heart of that economy," Mintak says. "It's all about energy storage now with the adoption of electric vehicles just starting to take hold. We're seeing news coming out of China, saying they're looking at banning internal combustion engines, and we've heard similar stories coming out of England and France. That's going to mean a massive demand for lithium."
The global lithium compounds market is projected to reach U.S. $5.87 billion by 2020 at a compound annual growth rate of 13.22% between 2015 and 2020. Lithium-ion batteries are the fastest growing segment of the market.
"We believe it's going to exceed that, so the lithium space, the electric metal space, is one of the most attractive and exciting spaces to be in for a mining, mineral exploration company," Mintak concludes.
