  • Iran says it’s discovered what could be the world’s second-largest lithium deposit
Iran says it has discovered a massive deposit of lithium in one of its western provinces. The ministry believes the deposit holds 8.5 million tons of lithium, which, if true, would make the deposit the second-largest known lithium reserve in the world after Chile. After several years of international sanctions, Iran’s economy would greatly benefit from the export of this valuable resource.
