The electrons flow from the negative electrode to the positive on the external circuitry, where the resulting current flow can be used for an application. At the positive electrode the electrons recombine with the Li+ ions and are stored in the molecular structure of the active material.

Lithium-ion batteries are already used in everything from electric cars to your smartphone, but there are limitations to the technology. The batteries use an organic electrolyte solution to complete their charge and discharge cycles, but the material is particularly sensitive to temperatures above about 140 degrees Fahrenheit. As a result, conventional lithium-ion batteries also require cooling systems. Researchers from Japan's Tohoku University, however, recently announced the development of a solid electrolyte. Although it's not as conductive as the conventional solution, it also isn't as volatile and works at temperatures ranging from room temperature to more than 300 degrees. That c...

The mine is owned by Rio Tinto Group, an international mining and exploration company headquartered in the United Kingdom. The copper operations at Bingham Canyon Mine are managed through Kennecott Utah Copper Corporation which operates the mine, a concentrator plant, a smelter, and a refinery. The mine has been in production since 1906, and has resulted in the creation of a pit over 0.6 miles (0.97 km) deep, 2.5 miles (4 km) wide, and covering 1,900 acres (770 ha). It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966 under the name Bingham Canyon Open Pit Copper Mine. The mine experienced a massive landslide in April of 2013 and a smaller slide in September of 2013. Udachnaya was discovered on June 15, 1955, just two days after the discovery of the diamond pipe Mir by Soviet geologist Vladimir Shchukin and his team. It is more than 600 metres (1,970 ft) deep, making it the third deepest open-pit mine in the world (after Bingham Canyon Mine and Chuquicamata). The nearby settlement of Udachny is named for the deposit. As of 2010, Udachnaya pipe is controlled by Russian diamond company Alrosa, which planned to halt open-pit mining in favor of underground mining in 2010. The mine has estimated reserves of 225.8 million carats of diamonds and an annual production capacity of 10.4 million carats Chuquicamata, or "Chuqui" as it is more familiarly known, is by excavated volume the biggest open pit copper mine in the world, located in the north of Chile, just outside of Calama, 215 km northeast of Antofagasta and 1,240 km north of the capital, Santiago. The mine is owned and operated by Codelco, a Chilean state enterprise, since the Chilean nationalization of copper in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Its depth of 850 metres (2,790 ft) makes it the second deepest open-pit mine in the world (after Bingham Canyon Mine in Utah, USA). The Diavik Diamond Mine is a diamond mine in the North Slave Region of the Northwest Territories, Canada, about 300 kilometres (190 mi) north of Yellowknife. It has become an important part of the regional economy, employing 700, grossing C$100 million in sales, and producing approximately 7.5 million carats (1,500 kg (3,300 lb)) of diamonds annually.[2] The area was surveyed in 1992 and construction began in 2001, with production commencing in January 2003. It is connected by an ice road and Diavik Airport with a 5,235 ft (1,596 m) gravel runway regularly accommodating Boeing 737 jet aircraft. The Grasberg Mine is the largest gold mine and the third largest copper mine in the world. It is located in the province of Papua in Indonesia near Puncak Jaya, the highest mountain in Papua, and it has 19,500 employees. It is majority owned through a subsidiary by Freeport-McMoRan, which owns 90.64% of PT Freeport Indonesia, the principal operating subsidiary in Indonesia, including 9.36% owned through its wholly owned subsidiary, PT Indocopper Investama. The Government of Indonesia owns the remaining 9.36% of PT Freeport Indonesia. FCX operates under an agreement with the Government of Indonesia, which allows Freeport to conduct exploration, mining and production activities in a 24,700-acre area (Block A). It also conducts exploration activities in an approximate 500,000-acre area (Block B). All of Freeport's proven and probable mineral reserves and current mining operations are located in Block A. The 2006 production was 610,800 tonnes of copper; 58,474,392 grams of gold; and 174,458,971 grams of silver.

The  ‘Green Parade’ was flagged off at Cubbon Park by  Ashwin Mahesh, Co Founder, Lithium, Praveen Salins ( Head of Operations) and John Mathew ( Head of Marketing) and the fleet passed through major parts of the city. Bangalore is the city where India’s first electric car was manufactured and Bangalore is again the first city to have such a large fleet of electric cars used by corporates. Lithium Urban Technologies which currently has about 200 cars for corporates is revolutionizing the employee transportation space by adopting a sustainable solution through EVs (electric vehicles). Flagging off the ‘Green Parade’,Mr.  Ashwin Mahesh, Co-founder Lithium Urban Technologies, said “EVs are ideally suited for Commercial operations due to the low operating costs. Lithium is working to customize EVs for duty cycles to maximize utilization of the EV fleet.” Sanjay Krishnan, CEO and Co-founder of Lithium Urban Technologies said, “We are experiencing great market traction. The fleet size has grown from 0 to over 200 EVs in the last 11 months. Our vision is to convert 1 billion km from ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) to EV in the next 5 years.”                                                                                                                                                   .   www.thrillingnewsindia.com

In this episode, longer-lasting batteries for heavy machinery. This is your manufacturing minute. Lithium-ion batteries are already used in everything from electric cars to your smartphone, but there are limitations to the technology. The batteries use an organic electrolyte solution to complete their charge and discharge cycles, but the material is particularly sensitive to temperatures above about 140 degrees Fahrenheit. As a result, conventional lithium-ion batteries also require cooling systems. Researchers from Japan's Tohoku University, however, recently announced the development of a solid electrolyte. Although it's not as conductive as the conventional solution, it also isn't as volatile and works at temperatures ranging from room temperature to more than 300 degrees. That could help reduce costs and advance the development of more compact battery systems. It could also allow the use of lithium-ion batteries in high-temperature environments from medicine to heavy industry. How would the addition of lithium-ion batteries alter large industrial operations? Could this technology be a game-changer for the manufacturing economy? Email us or leave your comments below. That’s all the time we have today, but tune in every weekday for your next Manufacturing Minute.

http://goldstocktrades.com/blog The Kings Valley Asset is 100% owned by Western Lithium and the company is continuing to prove that it can be competitive with the current producers. This world class lithium asset is located in the mining friendly, supportive and stable jurisdiction of Nevada. It could be one of the major suppliers to battery factories such as the $5 billion plant Tesla is building. Recently, Western Lithium received a $1.5 million payment from its largest shareholder towards building a Lithium Demonstration Plant in Germany expected to be operational by the end of 2014. The company received a USA patent for its process which separates lithium and potassium from clays. Western Lithium has a prefeasibility study which forecasts lower costs against current and potential producers. Western Lithium recently announced that the BLM has approved the Final Environmental Assessment. This means Western Lithium can operate the Hectorite clay Mine. Western Lithium CEO Jay Chmelauskas stated in the recent PR that, "We are beginning clay mining operations in 2014 to support our strategy of initially selling Hectatone™ organoclay products in the near term to the growing oilfield industry...Ultimately, we plan to increase our activities at Kings Valley and extract lithium from our hectorite clay in the future, in order to become a strategic USA based lithium supplier for new battery manufacturing that is anticipated due to increased lithium demand expected from electrified vehicles and grid storage." With renewed interest in electric vehicles and lithium ion batteries, Western Lithium could continue its upward breakout on record volume. Look for a breakout into new highs for Western Lithium as renewed interest comes into this high growth sector. This year may be a major year with the Lithium demonstration plant operational by year end and the Organoclay Plant producing hectorite by the summer. Disclosure: I am long WLCDF and WLC is a sponsor.

Lithium Australia (ASX:LIT) Critical Stage of Development for Sileach Technology

Lithium Australia (ASX:LIT) Critical Stage of Development for Sileach Technology

Lithium Australia (ASX:LIT) has continued to advance their Sileach(TM) technology as they announced that pilot testing at ANSTO Minerals (a division of the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation) had commenced. The first test consisted of a 1 day commissioning run of the Sileach(TM) circuit, after which process solutions and residual solids are being analysed prior to commencing continuous operations in about two weeks' time. Test work is being completed on trilithionite from Lepidolite Hill and spodumene concentrates fro Pilbara Minerals' (ASX:PLS) Pilgangoora Project. Lithium Australia has also commenced exploration work on a number of their prospective lithium projects in Western Australia, whilst plans were announced to spin-off the company's graphite assets. Analyst Comment: Lithium Australia (LIT) has continued to move forward on a number of fronts. We see potential value for shareholder in the following areas: Pilot Testing: This is a critical stage in the development of the Sileach(TM) technology. A positive outcome will give investors confidence regarding Sileach(TM) as an alternative technology for the recovery of lithium. Sileach(TM) has the potential to reduce the cost of lithium chemical production from hard rock sources by eliminating roasting, a major cost associated with chemical production, as well as increasing by-product credit revenue. The results of the test work from Lepidolite Hill and Pilgangoora are important for the validation of Sileach, however we believe the results from Pilgangoora will most likely have the most significant impact on the company's share price, given the potential for a Joint Venture with Pilbara Minerals for the development of a lithium conversion facility (depending on the outcome of a series of test work programs and feasibility studies). We expect results from the test work to be announced during October. Exploration: As highlighted in our initiation report, LIT has one of the largest portfolios of prospective lithium projects on the ASX. Despite this we believe there is little value in LIT's share price for these assets. Exploration work has commenced at Ravensthorpe and Greenbushes, both located in close proximity to two major producing lithium operations. A discovery at either project would result in a significant share price re-rating. The initial drill program at Ravensthope is due to commence in the coming months. Graphite IPO: LIT plans to spin-off their Graphite assets into a new ASX listed vehicle. Assuming LIT received equity for these assets, management may consider an in-specie distribution to shareholders in the future.
