SQM’s lithium sales volumes increased 50% in the last quarter of 2020

Chilean miner SQM posted record lithium sales in the last quarter of 2020, although floundering prices for the ultralight metal continued to weigh on the company’s profits. SQM said its lithium sales volumes in the fourth quarter jumped 50% from the previous quarter, hitting a three-month record of more than 25,000 tonnes. However, prices stagnated at $5,300 per tonne.
