"It seems to me, to say the least, a sin that companies with lithium holdings like this are not even working them," Prokurica said on a tour of the Aguilar and Infieles salt flats.

The company, which operates in northern Argentina, late Tuesday cut its full-year revenue and earnings forecast for the second time this year because it will delay selling about a quarter of its annual lithium hydroxide production until 2020.
