COVID-19 puts a dent in LatAm lithium ambitions

The COVID-19 pandemic has put a dent in Latin America’s lithium mining ambitions, with at least five key assets delayed. Suspensions and new pandemic-related health protocols have seen start-up estimates put back by around 3-18 months at development stage projects in Argentina, Mexico and Chile, according to research by BNamericas. The delays have also contributed to an increase in capex at one of the projects.
