News-Argentina’s government wants to boost lithium revenues

According to the Chronicle, the local newspaper, regional representatives at the so-called lithium roundtable called on mining companies to propose how much of their lithium sales should go to state coffers in an effort to boost the industry, which authorities believe is not paying enough.
Soaring lithium export revenues and promising growth prospects are seen as an opportunity for the government to get more out of them.
Argentina is believed to have one of the world’s largest reserves of lithium. The country is currently the fourth largest producer of lithium after Australia, Chile and China, and could become the third in the short term.
