Well I now know Portugal is likely to become Europe's hotbed of Lithium Production. Wonder how much European Union lets call it investment, (state-aid is such a dirty word), will be forthcoming to facilitate an expansion/exploitation.

If Cornwall wants a lithium industry, I think its safe to say, comparative UK plans for investment and making it happen will be miniscule in comparison.

The Cheviots up here are granite so if granite areas equate with Lithium-rich deposits who knows they might start a few boreholes up here.
