Default El Nino and the lithium triangle

According to an article published by Australia's CSIRO we are more likely than not to have an El Nino event either this year or next based on sea temperature measurements.

Past El Nino events have shown that even the Andes can be heavily affected to the extent that lithium brine lakes evaporation could be impeded by heavy cloud cover and greatly increased rainfall along with transport and infrastructure problems ......

Consequently Lithium production from the "lithium triangle" could be markedly affected. This would then bring into play the hard rock/spodumene lithium producers and this is why a visit to could be useful for those wanting to explore this.

The post immediately below this shows why Lithium has become an increasingly important substrate for what I term the "electron economy".
