I would think Elementis might be a customer for WL organoclay. I didn't look to closely but it appears to me they do not mine.
To add a bit to your post, there is a lot of oil but it is very deep, like Argentina's Tupi field.
"Brazil reported the discovery of a massive offshore oil field. The Tupi discovery boosted Brazil's proven oil reserves more than 50%. But don't let this ultra-deep field's huge numbers fool you-it's going to take a lot of time and money to bring Tupi into production.
"In order to extract the oil, producers have to go through 7,000 feet of water, over 10,000 feet of sand and rocks as well as another 6,000 feet of salt."
Point is they will need the best drilling fluid available for the bits, and the heaviest mud available because of the extreme pressure.
Being able to see a foreign island does not make a person an expert on that country, You Betcha!
And you sound like a R. so you are a R.
That's true, but being able to see a Russian Island from and American Island, does not give a person insight into that country's politics, history, military, traditions, or anything else, all it does is give a person a view of a piece of land owned by another country.
Tina Fae mocked Palin's insinuations by reducing them to a one liner.
Palin is just another dumb R. like you.
"5-yr-old Tripp sleeping soundly in the Hummer limo while his demure, born-again-virgin mother pounds a guy in the face with her right hook;
-- Palin son Track telling women at a party he'd "like to bend you over right here" until their husbands decided to intervene and thump on him;
-- Sarah all the while screeching "Do you know who we are?!?!?!?!?"
LOL R. make such good choices.
Why is he is surprised, ROC wants Silver Peak because they can process South American Lithium.
costs of processing organo clay and lithium.. Another board said it would cost WL $2000.00 for lithium.
The following is from another company's PR, dated 2/14/2013. “Lithium hydroxide trades for around $7,500 per ton and lithium carbonate is roughly in a $6,000 – 6,500 per ton range.”
Without an Obamacare critic to talk to, Klepper turned to a nurse who lost her free clinic job because her patients could finally get health coverage. And she was thrilled about that turn of events. Now, she told him, she was focusing her efforts on other causes, like human trafficking.
What the Republicans made out of it.
“‘Obamacare Forces Nurse into Sex-Slave Trade,’”
Creeps everyone of them.
The H00ker_Stupid doesn't know how to use Google, even special needs children can do that.
Chew on that for awhile, and stop flip flopping from, the earth is warming because of Sun bursts, to it isn't warming.
"Police have released limited details about the incident as the investigation is ongoing, but in a statement they confirmed that alcohol may have been a factor.
"Anchorage police responded to a report of a verbal and physical altercation taking place between multiple subjects," according to a statement released by police. "Alcohol was believed to have been a factor in the incident."
The party was held to honor the birthdays of former participants in the Iron Dog snowmobile race, including Todd. In the end, the Palin family was ordered to leave."
LOL, can you believe the poor choices the Reptilecons make??
In the interview FrankenCheney says it would end up being a quagmire and that Iraq would splinter.
The transcript won't post but if you Google- "Cheney explains why invading Iraq would be a bad idea," you can get the video and transcript.
"Once you got to Iraq and took it over, took down Saddam Hussein's government, then what are you going to put in its place?
That's a very volatile part of the world, and if you take down the central government of Iraq, you could very easily end up seeing pieces of Iraq fly off -- part of it the Syrians would like to have to the west, part of it eastern Iraq the Iranian would like to claim, fought over it for eight years.
In the north you've got the Kurds, and if the Kurds spin loose and join with the Kurds in Turkey, then you threaten the territorial integrity of Turkey. It's a quagmire if you go that far and try to take over Iraq."
For some reason the whole transcript won't post, FrankenCheney latter added it would be a quagmire, of course that was before Halliburton was on the verge of bankruptcy.
Another thought, WL could sell its Li to ALB as a by product of producing their drilling clay. At this point I have no idea if this is possible, if ALB can process WL type of Li, or if it would be cost effective. fwiw
If there is a suitor for WL I would think it would be Albemarle Corporation - NYSE ALB, not TSLA. TSLA has no mining experience and have plenty on their plate as it is. I don't know how big of a Li deposit ALB will get from ROC, but the demand for Li is going to be tremendous. Li can be recycled but from my incomplete DD, it isn't feasible because of the high costs. So ALB may be looking for additional reserves.
