Top Reasons to Invest in Lithium Heading into New Year 2024

Analysts still don’t believe the world will have enough lithium supply to meet demand. As noted by Reuters, “Albemarle (NYSE: ALB), the world’s largest lithium producer, is growing rapidly across the Americas, Asia and Australia. Still, it expects global lithium demand to exceed supply by 500,000 metric tons in 2030. Various consultancies and other producers have slightly different projections, but all warn of a looming shortage.” Even analysts over at Morningstar believe lithium supplies will need to rise from about 800,000 metric tons in 2022 to about 2.5 million by 2030 to meet demand. Those are all strong catalysts for companies such as LI-FT Power Ltd. (TSXV: LIFT) (OTCQX: LIFFF), Lithium Americas (NYSE: LAC) (TSX: LAC), American Lithium Corp. (NASDAQ: AMLI) (TSXV: LI), and Piedmont Lithium (NASDAQ: PLL).

Li-FT Power Ltd. announced that it has obtained a Type A Land Use Permit from the Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board for its Cali project in Northwest Territories.

The Land Use Permit will enable LIFT to expand its exploration activities in the Cali area and allows the Company to establish an exploration camp and fuel caches, conduct diamond and reverse circulation drilling, and construct & maintain winter access roads. This Permit will grant the Company adaptability to scale up its exploration efforts, adjusting its approach according to the findings and enhanced knowledge of the area. The Land Use Permit has a term of five years, which may be extended for an additional two years.

April Hayward, Chief Sustainability Officer of LIFT commented “I am very pleased with the terms and conditions in the Land Use Permit, which provide LIFT with the flexibility to expand our exploration program in response to results as we learn more about the area. I am also grateful for the support and feedback we received throughout the permitting process and look forward to continuing to strengthen the collaborative working relationships we have developed with regulatory agencies and local communities in the Cali area.”
