Or even what’s different between lithium and cannabis?
It’s clear and obvious that lithium is the sexy mining story of our time. But as with the sex appeal of any individual, it does fade over time. The only interesting question is – how long will it take? So, when considering the varied lithium miners we can buy into or trade, how long is it going to take for this story to fade in attraction?
One answer might be that it already has. We had a boom in lithium mining investment back in 2013/14 and one of the graduates of that, Altura, has already gone bust. It did get to production, but just couldn’t carry the costs of having got there.
