Joe Lowry on all thing’s lithium (ex-hard rock)! (Part 1)

Joe “Mr Lithium” Lowry is back on Money of Mine to discuss all things lithium, excluding the hard rock!


We figured we’ve spoken plenty about the spodumene projects that dominate the West Australian landscape, and it was about time we got up the curve on brines, DLE & sedimentary projects.


Part 1 of our chat goes into what makes up a good brine project, what the stand outs are, what DLE is all about, what the best projects look like, Joe’s thoughts on the potential impact of DLE, opinions on the “lithium triangle” countries & plenty more.
