We came across of interesting guide on Lithium investment opportunities, it is for further investigation at this point only. First reaction is that pure plays are just very few among them if any, lots of technological bets and some companies are already relatively big with just some revenue connected to Lithium. We continue research in a Junior space. Just a few companies are active in that area at the moment.

" August, 23rd 2009. It looks like we do not have to preach about our Lithium and REE bull market any more and CNBC and BNN is taking the lead with THE Wall Street Journal. Apart from our English specially spiced with patented new grammar inventions and misspellings we have to give something more to stay at the edge of the green mobility revolution. As we all know Electricity comes from the electric socket on the wall, but where from Lithium and REE comes apart from broadcasting fever and websites full of this stuff?"

Next companies are Technology side of Lithium story.

As car companies ramp up production of hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are a top option. The increased demand could be a nice boon to lithium miners, processors and battery manufacturers.
