Lithium is running into a severe supply-demand situation, creating an incredible opportunity for companies like Alpha Lithium Corp. (STOCK:ALLIF).
The last time this happened, some of the world’s top lithium companies exploded.
All as the lithium supply-demand story has worsened.
Granted, we ran into an over-supply issue in recent years, but the supply issue is happening again. And it’s creating a massive “second round” opportunity.
Right now — we’re in the initial stages of a massive boom similar to that – one that could potentially trigger a bull market for Alpha Lithium Corp. (STOCK:ALLIF).
All thanks to electric vehicle (EV) sales that are growing much faster than anyone expected.
Plus, experts now predict that by 2040, electric cars will make up 58% of the light vehicle market.(3)
And, according Resource World:
Just to run its Gigafactory in Sparks, Nevada, it will take between 60,000 and 85,000 tons of lithium carbonate annually to keep the factory running smoothly, according to industry insiders that follow Tesla.(5)
That’s another big reason to pay close attention to Alpha Lithium Corp. (STOCK:ALLIF).
All as it races to unearth necessary lithium supply.
After all, ”All the supply from the globe’s major lithium miners Albemarle Corp., Soc. Quimica y Minera de Chile SA, Tianqi Lithium Corp. and Ganfeng Lithium Co. — companies that mine mainly in Australia, Chile and China — probably won’t be enough to meet demand,” reports The Washington Post.(6)
So it’s no wonder…
At the moment, the world’s top lithium companies are unearthing opportunity in the Lithium Triangle in Argentina, which is said to hold as much as 54% of the world’s lithium supply.
It’s also the latest hot spot for Alpha Lithium Corp. (STOCK:ALLIF) – a newcomer to the area.
The Lithium Triangle is made up of the corners of Argentina, Chile, and Bolivia…
With estimates saying it holds up to 54% of the world’s entire lithium resource, there’s certainly plenty of big opportunity.
Inside that hot zone, Alpha Lithium own 100% of Argentina’s Tolillar Salar in Salta Province. The property covers 68,000 acres, or 265 sq. miles.
It’s also one of the last remaining undeveloped salars in Salta Province, Argentina.
Alpha Lithium (STOCK:ALLIF) has a good deal of property in a region that holds up to 54% of the world’s supply – badly needed supply, we should say.
Better, Alpha Lithium has some big neighbors in the region, too.
Meanwhile, Alpha Lithium trades with a market cap of just $33 million.
And trades at approximately 44 cents.
However, with the lithium boom taking shape – again – and with the Lithium Triangle holding such a massive lithium deposit, there could be sizable opportunity here.
The initial geophysics and trend data suggest that the entire Tolillar Salar is worthy of extensive study and could be capable of an accelerated development program based on results.
The reality is that the Argentine region of the “Lithium Triangle” hosts the most experienced personnel and infrastructure ever assembled to service the advanced needs of major producers that virtually surround the property. Instead of thinking in terms of decades to production in other locations, Lithium brine extraction remains the most prolific approach and commercially proven success story in daily production throughout the region.
Based on the facts, this truly could be the last big lithium opportunity in this world-famous, proven and productive region.
Better, there’s impressive infrastructure in the region, too.
