In 1976 a National Research Council Panel estimated that Western World lithium reserves and resources totaled 10.6 million tonnes as elemental lithium. Subsequent discoveries, particularly in brines in the southern Andes and the plateaus of western China and Tibet have increased the tonnages significantly. Geothermal brines and lithium bearing clays add to the total. This current estimate totals 28.4 million tonnes Li equivalent to more than 150.0 million tonnes of lithium carbonate of which… 

Groundwater in sedimentary basins as potential lithium resource: a global prospective study

TLDR
Conservative estimations based on fluid volume and lithium concentration in selected reservoirs indicate that these lithium resources in groundwater from sedimentary basins are comparable to salars and hard-rock mines and could be a significant potential resource for the next decades.

Lithium availability and future production outlooks

Lithium Recovery from Brines Including Seawater, Salt Lake Brine, Underground Water and Geothermal Water

Demand to lithium rising swiftly as increasing due to its diverse applications such as rechargeable batteries, light aircraft alloys, air purification, medicine and nuclear fusion. Lithium demand is

A Constraint for Electric Vehicles

Summary There is disagreement on whether the supply of lithium is adequate to support a future global fleet of electric vehicles. We report a comprehensive analysis of the global lithium resources

Lithium Resources and Production: Critical Assessment and Global Projections

This paper critically assesses if accessible lithium resources are sufficient for expanded demand due to lithium battery electric vehicles. The ultimately recoverable resources (URR) of lithium

Lithium Storage and Release From Lacustrine Sediments: Implications for Lithium Enrichment and Sustainability in Continental Brines

Despite current and projected future reliance on lithium (Li) as a resource, deficiencies remain in genesis models of closed‐basin Li brines. Subsurface geochemical interactions between water and

LITHIUM IN NATURE, APPLICATION, METHODS OF EXTRACTION
