Developments for Piedmont Lithium’s North Carolina Site Expansion
This area of North Carolina has a history of lithium mining. It sits along what’s been identified as the Carolina Tin-Spodumene Belt, the only one of its kind in the United States.
U.S. Rep. Patrick McHenry stopped by his native Gaston County this week to learn more about a local lithium-mining project.
A region west of Charlotte that was once a mother lode of lithium, the increasingly vital metal that powers cellphones, Teslas and cordless tools, may soon be one again.
U.S. government officials plan to meet with executives from automakers and lithium miners in early May as part of a first-of-its-kind effort to launch a national electric vehicle supply chain strategy, according to three sources familiar with the matter.
After partnering with prominent native North Carolinian Lamont Leatherman, Piedmont Lithium discovered a land package in the world-class Carolina Tin-Spodumene belt and quickly acquired some initial land leases, completed successful initial drilling before deciding to commit to the project.
Piedmont Lithium is an emerging lithium company focused on the development of its 100%-owned Piedmont Lithium Project in North Carolina, with the goal of becoming a strategic domestic supplier of lithium to the increasing electric vehicle and battery storage markets in the U.S. The Piedmont Lithium Project is located in one of the premier regions in the world for lithium exploration given its favourable geology and ideal location with easy access to infrastructure, power, R&D centers for lithium and battery storage and major high-tech population centres.
