    [$$] Court Backs Chinese Company's Bid to Invest in Chilean Lithium Producer

    On Thursday, a Chilean court signed off on an agreement that Tianqi struck with the country’s competition regulator over its proposed $4.1 billion acquisition of about 24% of shares in Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile SA, or SQM. The court said the agreement was “proportional and sufficient to mitigate” risks of Tianqi’s acquisition of the SQM stake. Under the deal, which lasts up to six years, Tianqi agreed it wouldn’t appoint its directors or employees to the SQM board and promised that its appointees wouldn’t disclose SQM’s confidential information, among other measures.

    [$$] Chilean Court Weighs Chinese Investment in Country's Flagship Lithium Producer

    A court in Chile is expected to rule this week on an agreement permitting China’s biggest lithium company to take a major stake in the South American country’s flagship producer of the metal critical to batteries and electric vehicles. In September, Tianqi and Chile’s competition regulator agreed to limits on how much influence the Chinese company could wield at SQM, as Sociedad Quimica y Minera is called. SQM has said that deal doesn’t provide strong enough protections against potential harm from a competitor becoming its second-largest shareholder.

    Tesla Lithium Dash Could Slow as Mine Project Faces Hurdle

    An Australian mining lithium project that has an agreement to supply Tesla Inc. faces a legal hurdle that may delay plans to start production, potentially spurring shortages of the mineral used in batteries for electric cars. A court in Perth recommended Western Australia’s mining ministry shouldn’t approve an exemption from past minimum exploration-expenditure obligations at the Mt. Holland hard-rock project, lithium giant SQM said in a statement on Wednesday. Development of Mt. Holland, owned by SQM and Kidman Resources Ltd., could be slowed if the ministry doesn’t award the exemption, SQM said.
