Cornish startup aims to be Europe's main source of lithium
A startup in Cornwall, UK, has secured rights to produce lithium for batteries and aims to be the major European supplier of the metal for batteries.
the country significant strategic advantages in a world increasingly focussed on zero emissions and renewable power.  We believe the potential benefits of developing a lithium industry in Cornwall will be significant for the county and for the UK as a whole.2

“Although this project is still at an early stage it is very exciting news," said Professor Kip Jeffrey, Head of Camborne School of Mines which is a global centre of excellence for mining technology. "If successful, it will be good for the whole of Cornwall and I believe will also have wider potential implications for the whole of the UK. In recent years’ too few of our young people have aspired to become mining engineers or geologists despite these being well paid and exciting careers. “With the developments at Wolf Minerals, Strongbow and Cornish Lithium in the south west, Sirius in Yorkshire and Dalradian in Northern Ireland, I hope that we will see an increase in undergraduates interested in all aspects of mining. We can develop generations of young people with skills to export around the world and I look forward to working with them as Camborne School of Mines plays its part.”
