Water fight raises questions over Chile lithium mining
Chilean regulators have charged a mining company with over-drawing lithium-rich brine from the fragile salt flats in the Atacama desert, drawing down the water table, according to documents. The case raises questions about the environmental impacts of lithium mining just as Chile has green-lighted a tripling of production by mining giants SQM and Albemarle.
