Thank you, That's some good funding right there.   I am curious how that altitude is going to play into it..

A couple of years ago, Joline and I went to Peru and one of the places we visited was Lake Titicaca @ 12,507 feet. At that altitude, walking up hill is not much fun; it takes a lot of energy to exert yourself in that thin air. Everest must be a bitch. I think the altitude at that Salar will pretty much preclude running a NA car there.

If you go back to the main page of this Forum, then scroll all the way down to the bottom, you'll find "Announcements".  Under that is "Upcoming Events".  The only thead there is one about next month's "Top of the World" event in Bolivia, with lots of info.

It could be a mile thick but it's still in Bolivia and 10K elevation.....but nice to see that there is no chemical plant.

If Intrepid decides to mine in Bolivia, perhaps the Bonneville Salt Flats will have an opportunity to "recover".....

A tale of two salt flats. Both about the same age, geologically, that is. One was mined for a few years the other not so much! One has salt for 100 miles the other not so much!
It is reported that 85% of all the vehicles in the world will be electric by 2030. One of the largest lithium deposits in the world is at one of these salt flats.
Care to guess the ending of this story?  huh huh angry angry
See ya on what's left in a few weeks!  grin
