Massive Amount Of Lithium Found In Wyoming

If you use a mobile phone, or any portable electronic, you know that the little kept secret of any portable device is that battery technology has barely improved over the years. We still struggle to keep our smartphone charged through the day, and modern batteries, currently found in millions of electronic gadgets, all rely on lithium. Right now, the US imports the vast majority of its lithium, and while it is a recyclable substance, there is no guarantee that the supplies will last forever. Now however, it seems that at least for the US, these imports may not be needed for long.

Researchers at the University of Wyoming have found a huge reserve of lithium deep underground near Rock Springs. This natural reserve could hold enough lithium to serve all of the needs of the country for years to come. This is a rare find but could be an economic boom for the region, and could even drive prices down, and push innovation in this sector up.
