    Lithium is not the only material world #2 lithium producer SQM produces. It is also a world class producer of specialty fertilizers and iodine, each of which is also in a bull market. Here is what SQM's CEO, Ricardo Ramos, had to say about the company's performance in those markets:

    "In the iodine market, the rapid post-Covid recovery is being reflected in a 25% increase in our sales volumes in the first three quarters of 2021 compared to the same period last year. This strong demand growth should have a positive impact on prices going forward since supply is not keeping up."

    The CEO continued by saying, "Given the existing shortage of potash and potassium-based fertilizers, we have seen a significant increase of global potassium prices, letting us report an over 65% increase of our average price in potassium business line during the third quarter of 2021 when compared to the same period last year. This positive trend should continue during the fourth quarter, with prices of potassium-based fertilizers growing at a rate higher than earlier anticipated".

    Some investors who may have initially been somewhat ambivalent on world #2 lithium producer SQM's reported Q3 earnings last week are surely coming to the realization that it's all about the future with this company. Indeed, the forward outlook for this company in the lithium market is nothing short of phenomenal. Yes, Q3 revenues and earnings were strong, but if there was anything at all that held them back from being much, much stronger, it was SQM's legacy contracts with longstanding customers that are not at anything close to today's skyrocketing lithium prices. After all, spot lithium carbonate has doubled in just three months! Well, surely those investors, who might have initially been disappointed that Q3 numbers were not even higher, are beginning to see the bigger picture. The great news is that the bulk of those legacy contracts are expiring this quarter (Q4) and will be renewed at much higher rates that are reflective of today's sky-high prices. Not only that, SQM is ramping up its lithium production at a very impressive rate. It is currently producing at a 120,000 metric ton/year rate (which is dramatically higher than last year at this time), and is projecting a 180,000 metric ton/year rate being reached at some point next year.

    Here is CEO Ricardo Ramos on his SQM's ramping lithium production and the all-important expiry of those legacy contracts (second paragraph):

    "The expansion of our lithium operations is yielding positive results, letting us increase our sales volumes more than 80% when compared to last year. We are already producing at rate higher than 120,000 metric tons per year, while we continue working to reach 180,000 metric tons capacity next year. We are confident that our sales volumes could reach close to 100,000 metric tons this year, on a market that we estimate will grow close to 50%. This market growth is putting pressure on prices, as a result, we forecast average prices to be close to 50% higher in the fourth quarter this year when compared to prices reported in the third quarter 2021."

    "The positive trends we are seeing in each of the markets in which we participate, along with the expiration of the legacy lithium contracts, are leading us to reach record-level results in the fourth quarter of this year."

    These people don't mine anything, don't make anything, and their 2021 Annual Report is FLUFF and an abortion at best. Financial statements are not reviewed by ANY accounting firm. Wow, what a scam.

    Piedmont Lithium plans to build an open pit lithium mine in the northwestern part of Gaston County, North Carolina. They will mine 24/7 on up to 2,000 acres of land. Not only will it impact my family's home of almost three centuries, it would create severe water quality issues for the various streams that run through the proposed area and contaminate/dry up well water. Repeated blasting will threaten the structural integrity of homes and businesses, cracking foundations and walls. The blasting will create immense amounts of dust, high decibel noise, and light pollution. Property values will be decimated, it will force the closure of state maintained roads, damage property, threaten a variety of historically unique and significant sites, and would decimate forestland, crop land, and wildlife. In addition to threatening well water, the mine would also threaten the drinking water of thousands of people living in towns like Dallas and Belmont. Because of this, we petition the Gaston County Commissioners, the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality and the other governmental agencies involved to deny permits for this mine and natural disaster.

    $pll I went to the mining commission hearing last night with friends who live close by or work with PLL. There were lots of environmental questions that PLL could not answer. Arsenic in water from old mine a few miles away has environmental groups raising flags. Stay tuned.

    Tesla has already indirectly invested in Québec’s lithium resources through its deal with Piedmont Lithium, which is going to source lithium from Sayonna Mining, a company behind a lithium project in Quebec’s Abitibi region.

    Diversification in Lithium sector is best strategy in my opinion. At this stage there is nothing driving PLL higher. it is stuck in a tight range with a slight negative bias. The profits so far have been nice. I personally have taken some and invested into LAC and Frontier FL.V Both companies are well managed. LAC is on fire and consistently up and FL.V has started to move as a result of good deposit results and development. good strategy to spread the profits into diversified portfolio a little in my opinion.

    County Commissioner meeting last night, as reported from Charlotte Fox 46 news, not going very well; because of concerns over Indians, local landowners and pollution of local streams from this operation...

    Hi I live near Cherryville Mary Grove road about 11 miles to the mine site. It is a real concern to residents concerning water contamination and changing the land from beautiful farm land rolling hills aND pasture to muck. However The new mining technolgy that is being developed in Clayton Valley has already received a federal permit to extract the Li with minimal water and not creating a bunch of muck. As a resident near PLL mine I would be OK to have more enviromental friendly mining that will return the land to its former self after the Li is gone.

    What I wonder is how much of the lithium is too close to creeks, roads or boundary lines to be able to mine by law. My friends nearby say there is a big difference.

    Has anyone seen the report PLL put out today I think. It has no date for production to start and the map of the site is an old one and not the one submitted to the mining commission. What is going on?
