Fueling the power revolution

The global shift to renewable energy has created increased demand for battery grade lithium.  Lithium South is developing it’s Hombre Muerto North Lithium Project to supply future demand. The Company objective is to move the project to production in the near future, utilizing Direct Lithium Extraction Technology. This new extraction method requires a much smaller environmental footprint, with significantly higher lithium recovery rates.
