Listen: The battle between spodumene and brine – lithium mining

S&P Global Platts Battery Metals Podcast series continues, tracking the most-followed topics in the market. In this edition, Platts looks into lithium and how mining techniques differ for one of the lightest metals in the world. The podcast sheds light on what brine and spodumene are, where and by whom it is mined and why brine has higher capital expenditure costs, but lower operating costs than spodumene. Finally, the podcast focuses on how potential changes in battery chemistry could create relative advantages for spodumene over brine.

This podcast is brought to you by Platts EMEA metals pricing specialist, Marcel Goldenberg, and global metals pricing manager, Ciaran Roe. For comments or feedback, please contact Battery_Metals@spglobal.com.
