According to PwC Peru, the lithium reserves found in recent years in the Puno region exceed 4 million tons, which means great opportunities for Peru to become a producer of this metal.
“The demand for lithium will increase because it is used for electric car batteries, for example. Then, with a medium-term vision, Peru could become a lithium producer”, Pablo Saravia, a leading Mining Partner at PwC Peru, told Gestión.
Earlier this year, a lithium deposit that exceeds 2.34 million tons, was discovered in the Peruvian region of Puno.
