  We have a very interesting development: BYD - Chinese Lithium batteries and Electric Cars automaker backed by Warren Buffett moves into Argentina. China moves again to secure the market and strategic commodities. Despite all recent doom and gloom in the markets, electric cars are moving forward and all major Lithium producers have increased their prices this summer. We are following here another Chinese company in Lithium space: Ganfeng Lithium with its stake in International Lithium Corp. ILC is our top pick in the lithium exploration and development space.
  This move confirms the fundamentals of the Lithium demand and this Chinese interest should translate in the new market activity among Lithium developers.

Electric Vehicle Lithium Battery Market to Reach $14.6 Billion in Revenues by 2017, According to Pike Research
"Now we can talk about the growth and the hot market for the Lithium batteries. Asia is leading the way forward and Asian trading houses and Lithium materials producers are securing the Lithium supply for the Green Revolution in transportation.

 


 

  With Oil moving above $90 today more bids are coming into the Lithium developers space which are bitten into the dust with the end of the world scare during past couple of months. Insiders are buying into Orocobre Lithium and International Lithium now and, maybe, this sell off will be another major entry point into this generational Bull market. Future will tell."

"Pure Green cars:
 
 
 
Chinese electric vehicle and battery maker BYD Auto has inked a deal with Argentinean government in order to produce electric vehicles for public transportation and lithium batteries in the country.
 
"Argentina could become a regional platform for the company to export to Mercosur, Latin America and the world," the Ministry of Economy and Production of Argentina said in a statement Tuesday.
 
Mercosur is the South American trading bloc, whose founding members are Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay.
 
The country’s lithium natural reserves may have played an important part in BYD’s decision."
