    Supervolcanoes Could Grow Cars With Plugs

    Supervolcanoes Could Drive The Electric Car Boom

    August 17, 2017 (Mining.com via OilPrice.com)

    “…[Scientists] have discovered a new source of lithium, a key element in the manufacturing of battery-powered electric cars and other renewable energy technologies: supervolcanoes…[L]ake sediments within unusually large volcanoes can host lithium-rich clay deposits, which would be an essential step toward diversifying the supply of the metal…Most of the lithium supply that currently powers modern electronics is found at salt flats in Chile and rock formations in Australia; the [new discovery just documented by Stanford University researchers] could open the industry to several other countries…

    Supervolcanoes are much larger than ordinary volcanoes and erupt at least 1,000 cubic kilometers of material in one eruption. They look like huge holes in the ground, known as calderas…Over tens of thousands of years, rainfall and hot springs leach out lithium from the volcanic deposits, and the lithium accumulates, along with sediments, in the caldera lake…Not every supervolcano leaves behind such bountiful lithium and other rare metals essential in building the 21st century energy infrastructure. But the calderas along the relatively thick crust found in western U.S. are particularly good candidates…” click here for more
