Q: Hi Peter...I believe SQM mines most of it's Lithium in Chile. Possibly the company is domiciled in Chile which may protect it. Do you know if the legislators intend to revise the royalties on all mineral extraction, including Lithium, besides targeting the gold / copper producers? If production of any material is reduced then higher prices might be expected. Of course too high prices may put an end to the demand side of the party generally. Maybe the internal combustion engine will hang around a bit longer than expected!

Q: A lot of interest exists for the lithium industry. I was wondering what your opinion is and possible recommendations to participate in the growth of this sector of mining, or perhaps it is too late to experience much upside.

Q: I have recently received rights issued from a common share holding in SQM. I can't locate information on the rights, e.g., right to buy at? time expiration - can you provide some insight or, alternatively, a link that provides that information.

Q: Hi 5i. I am interested in the lithium space. I have listed three stocks that I have found. Would you recommend this space and if so what would be your favourite? It doesn't have to be from my list.

Thanks again for your reasoned advice.

Q: As the demand for electric vehicles inevitably grows over the coming years the demand for certain metals will stretch the supply from current mines. Given how long it normally takes years to get new mines approved and operational I suspect that there are some mining companies with existing assets could be well placed to take advantage of this probable market gap. Do you have any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks.

Q: Hello -

Which of these three resource stocks is the better investment? Or do you prefer another? I would prefer that it would be a larger company with decent balance sheet and good management. It would be in my RRSP in USD.

Q: SQM seems to be having environmental assessment problems. I believe the mine pumps up a lithium brine ground water. I think this water is allowed to evaporate in the desert sun to produce a lithium rich concentrate. Not sure if they inject water back into the ground to replace what has been taken out. That would add considerable expense to the whole operation. Do you feel SQM's mining operation is sustainable? The share price of SQM looks to be quite volatile over the past 10 years. I'm guessing demand is increasing slowly and the stock volatility has more to do with investor's short term passion followed by lack of passion for lithium. In addition I suppose SQM is a material's company so volatility comes with the territory. I remain undecided on the company and any thoughts you might have would be appreciated.
