Lithium Harvesting at Salar de Uyuni - NASA

Apr 26, 2019 The government began investing in a lithium mining operation at Salar de Uyuni about a decade ago. Landsat satellites began to detect evidence of buildings and evaporation ponds in the southern end of the salt flat in 2011. The Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 acquired the first image above on April 12, 2013. Nearly six years later, the size of the facility had grown significantly

Supplementary Information Lithium Mining Continuous

According to the requirements of lithium battery-85 grade purity (China standard, YS/T582-2013), the Mg2+ content in the final salt product 86 should be 70 ppm, implying that the Li+/Mg2+ ratio in the enriched lithium solution should 87 be 2609. This result indicates that a multi-step process is necessary to achieve a high-88 purity product. 89

Socio-environmental impacts of lithium mineral extraction

Socio-environmental impacts of lithium mineral extraction

Nov 27, 2018 Since geochemically lithium is a highly mobile element, there is a high chance that lithium will be released into the environment and potentially affect nearby communities (Figueroa et al 2013). The processing of lithium mining involves evaporation of brines and washing the mineral with sodium carbonate in large-scale polyvinyl chloride (PVC)-lined shallow ponds
